We provide balanced programmes for Young People, Teenagers and Children with Parents, that combine academic English and creative activities, to enhance the Students’ language development and nourish their confidence in understanding and speaking English.
Active English Learning is an educational-language project that provides an intense language experience enhanced by the care of three essential elements: creative thinking, joy of learning, self confidence. We aim to do this by offering a balanced programme combining academic English and creative activities that nourish language improvements as well as personal development.

Teachers provide guidance introducing the course topics, giving language exercises, introducing the students to the appropriate sources of information.
Students -according to their age and level of English- are encouraged to be engaged in researching, discussing and solving problems they may meet while learning. They are also stimulated to work in teams and share the results of their work so that they can take more responsibility and develop effective cooperative learning.
Conversations, role-playing, artistic activities, case-study and other teaching strategies may be offered to empower understanding of the learners.
English speakers are able to communicate, understand and interact with confidence with people from other countries in every kind of professional, social and cultural connection.
For the new generations it is not sufficient to learn some English, but they need to acquire English with the same fluency and correctness as their native language, eventually as their “second mother tongue”.
The acquisition of English -as well as other languages- provides a fundamental means not only toward more professional opportunities, but also reciprocal knowledge, breaking down barriers and prejudices, and leading potentially to tolerance and peace.
The time needed in each stage may vary in each individual and each learner should be allowed to proceed on his or her own pace.
Consistency is requirement for everyone. A teacher said once to the students: “miracles come from the Hoy Spirit; learning a language comes from your consistency, determination and passion”.
Joy and engagement are fundamental factors of learning, especially language learning as a language can’t be acquired nor learnt properly unless the learner engages him or herself in deep interest, bright enthusiasm, strong determination.
