Kids love children’s books. Jokingly, we say they usually start with the culinary stage – they try to find out what the pages taste like. However, with time they look at them with more focused interest. They learn colours, shapes and numbers from them. As they get older, they need stronger stimuli to focus their attention on a book for a more extended period. Therefore, we place particular stress on the attractiveness of our handbooks while at the same time maintaining top quality content. The resources we create are the pillar of the unique syllabus implemented by Early Stage. They spark students’ interest and reinforce the language learning process. A good English course book is a big buzz for children. We know that from experience.
Every Early Stage class duration is 40 to 90 minutes with English and results in learning 20 to 40 new words each week. The teaching aids that we design continuously support the work of the teacher and the students. They consolidate the foundations of the syllabus and prepare for the British Cambridge exams for children and teenagers.
Our teaching tools grow and develop with the learners, adjusting to their level and learning abilities. We have been creating them for many years, and they continuously undergo changes corresponding with those in the state education system and children’s current needs. With our team of highly experienced methodologists and practising teachers led by Joanna Zarańska – the author of many publications for the Polish and foreign markets – we are always up-to-date and provide our learners with the best course books for creative English learning. For our youngest learners, we create our own textbooks. For those from grade 6 upwards we use British publications combined with our original projects.
Year after year, our well-thought-out resources make our learners more and more independent users of English. As teenagers, they are in perfect command of it. We achieve this through our comprehensively designed course books, which address the different ways that children think. For visualisers, we have tons of exciting resources such as boards with graphics, illustrations, picture and word cue cards as well as art and language projects. For audile children, we have hundreds of musical productions, songs and nursery rhymes. For verbalisers – word plays, poems, rhymes and dialogues. For kinesthetics – physical exercises, miming techniques, dances and games. Participating in our theatre plays and multimedia projects supports personal skills development.
Apart from the linguistic components, our resources also contain culture elements, which open up children to the world in general. Not only do we focus on the customs of other countries, but we also participate in international projects, in which our students are successfully involved.
