Course details

British Council’s Kindergarten course use a variety of teaching materials and classroom activities to encourage language and literacy development through enjoyable and valuable learning experiences.

Jolly Phonics programme

Jolly Phonics is a fun and effective approach to teaching literacy to young children.  It is a multi-sensory, synthetic phonics programme that teaches children the English alphabetic code in a simple, but structured way.  The result?  Children will be able to read and write from an early age!

Children will be taught the 42 main letter-sound correspondences.  Each new letter sound is introduced with a story and an action.  Both the stories and the actions keep the children actively involved and help them to concentrate and remember the letter sounds efficiently.  They will also learn how to blend the sounds together to make new words.  Such methodology will enable children to naturally develop reading and writing skills in a shorter time frame.

Our courses for kids consist of 40 hours over 20 weeks. We aim to prepare your child for learning English in Prathom 1 and give them the opportunity to get a step ahead of the rest
