We see Very Young Learners as children from 3 to 7 years old. Our classes with Very Young Learners have a huge emphasis on oral comprehension and expression. We spend a lot of time in class telling stories, singing songs and doing activities where the children have to get up out of their seats and join in.
We have classes for four different age groups and our classes last an hour. Starting from four o'clock, we have classes on the hour every hour. Most of our students come to Tick It English twice a week, on Mondays and Wednesdays or Tuesdays and Thursdays. For those who can only come once a week, we run classes on Fridays.
