English Spot is the place where your child will have a chance to communicate in English both with the teachers and peers, and immerse in an English speaking environment.

 

Speaking English becomes natural   as everyone around speaks this language. Thus, children extend their vocabulary in a natural way, activate the expressions and words that they have known passively so far. In English Spot they gain knowledge from various fields, acquire valuable skills and develop their manual, artistic and sports skills in a friendly and inspiring setting.
