Why Should We Attend?
We want your child explore the English language with us in a pressure free and fun filled environment where there is plenty of shared laughter and joyous moments between all the kids and adults present. It's genuine quality time between you and your child!
By focusing on being an activity in which children will want to take part, we can gently introduce them to new vocabulary and concepts and build on that week by week to give them strong foundations in the English language.
Crucially, as we only work with native English speaking teachers, your child will be getting first hand exposure to their pronunciation which can give a better chance of accent free English as they develop their skills.
Studies have shown that it is easier to learn a language when younger so by starting out in English early you are also giving them a better chance to maximise their potential.
It's also a wonderful place for you to meet other likeminded parents in your area also small children. Friendships between the children, and even the adults, could blossom!
Through keeping it to a single forty five minute lesson every seven days we believe your time at English Explorers will be something you will both look forward to each week.
We look forward to welcoming you to join in the fun! Book your free trial lesson now.
How Much Does It Cost?

Book your free trial lesson now.
We operate a term length of up to twenty weeks with breaks for any holidays. The exact length and total cost of your term will be confirmed after your trial class and some variations may occur.
Payments are generally made by bank transfer from an invoice we will send to you. If you would prefer to pay by a different method, please let us know and we will try to accomodate you.
Plus, bring more than one child to the same lesson and you qualify for a 20% sibling discount for each additional child! So the cost for a second (or third!) child in the lesson would be only €12 including VAT.
If you have any questions or would like more details about the costs, term times or how to pay please don't hesitate to contact us.
What Happens In A Lesson?
Each lesson is unique although we do include elements of repetition so the children can enjoy familiar songs or dances into which they can really throw themselves. It can also be useful to repeat vocabulary to ensure it has imprinted in their memory and to help improve pronunciation.
Typically, we would start with practising greetings with each child getting a name sticker as part of this process which also introduces concepts of asking for something from an available choice.
At this point we all join in the 'hello' song with accompany actions. Don't worry, we're sure you'll both get to know it in no time at all!
Next up we would take part in an activity designed to introduce or reinforce some vocabulary based around a theme, anything from types of fruit to numbers! As a rule this would be a group activity but with each individual child given an opportunity to speak. We try to make this part as energetic and fun as possible so there's a good chance it will include singing or dancing or some kind of physical activity.
This could perhaps be followed up with a story, usually linked in some way to the introduced vocabulary and include lots of participation from the children. A colourful puppet may even make an appearance!
Then could be anything from themed colouring in with the teacher coming around for one-to-one time with each child to a game based on the words that they have learnt. Something that will really capture their imagination!
If there is time we would try to do a quick recap as a group to build confidence and practise pronunciation.
Finally everyone gets a chance to say goodbye in English which we vary in style and format to keep it interesting.
Remember though, every time will be a little bit different and involve different activities so it stays fresh, fun and challenging for your child.
