Start Reading - Phonics Fun!
For ages 3 - 5 & 4 – 6 years.

Playful learning is the heart of these successful beginning reading “classes”.

Level One
Children learn the phonic sounds of the alphabet and how letters work together to build words. They also start to read short words and sentences.

Level Two
The second level is geared towards children who already have started simple reading and writing.


Primary After-School Classes
Reading, Writing & Liking It!

Children love to learn. The magic of reading is at the heart of these small group classes and is the foundation for developing spelling, grammar and writing skills. Lessons are age-appropriate, enjoyable and instructional.
These lessons are designed especially for multi-lingual children whose primary education is in German. (Lessons also are available for children attending bi-lingual or English-speaking schools.)
As children’s skills and confidence in English reading and writing grows, so, too, does their motivation. Kids actually want to come to these English classes! 

Enrichment and Tutoring
Children at Bi-lingual or English-speaking schools.

These lessons are designed for children attending English-speaking schools with English as either a native language or as a second or third language. The one-on-one teaching is especially helpful for children with ADD or ADHD.
 

Classes
Small classes are tailored to the needs of each group and the individual children. Students are grouped according to developmental and skill levels. Individual instruction and tutoring for all ages through secondary school and gymnasium also is available. British and American English are taught.

Sesame English (4-7 year olds)

Berlitz has partnered with Sesame Workshop ™ to create a fun, first introduction to a new language for children ages 4-7.

Sesame English incorporates a lively multilingual Muppet character named Tingo, as well as other familiar Muppets. The program uses a variety of songs, games, and crafts to keep your child engaged.

Students are introduced to topics such as:

~ Greetings and farewells
~ Identifying people, animals and objects
~ Counting expressions and age
~ Expressing likes and dislikes

It all adds up to an incredible learning experience you can only get at Berlitz.

English Beat™

For kids ages 8-11, English Beat is the fun way to start talking and thinking in English.

Students build a practical command of English, using a variety of multi-media materials. Our program can take students from simple phrases all the way to functional English that covers most daily situations.

Students learn to speak about age-appropriate subjects such as:

~ Social Events
~ Sports
~ School
~ Food
~ Fashions & Trends
~ Expressing likes and dislikes

Berlitz Kids really gets your child talking — with near-native pronunciation and intonation.

Berlitz Teens Tutoring+

Your child can develop or enhance middle or high school language skills with Berlitz Teens Tutoring+. This program provides remedial or enrichment instruction as your child:

~ Learns at his or her own pace
~ Focuses on individual needs or personal goals
~ Participates in Individual or Semi-Private Instruction
~ Works with native-fluent instructors
~ Develops real language skills for the real world

Berlitz Teens Tutoring+ is the perfect option for your child to expand critical language skills that help him or her succeed in school and get into college. Your child will thank you later as s/he moves into adulthood and discovers the real value of language skills.

If you would like further information, please call us for a free personal consultation or visit our website at www.berlitz.ch.

"Links to Literacy" classes are taught by Annelise Dohr, a fully qualified and experienced UK primary school and special needs teacher who has accreditation (EDK) to teach in Swiss primary schools.

Here is the current list of camps coming up through July 2006. In general the ages for camps are between 4 years to 12 years of age. Spaces are limited as I usually only take between 4 -10 kids per camp.

If any older children are interested I also teach teenagers how to make beaded jewelry. That could be in an Art with Taylor camp. I am very adaptable and no two camps are the same even if the theme is the same. The same is true of my Art for kids courses for younger kids.
