Junior English Courses in London

Our English school in England's capital offers both standard and intensive English courses. Classes take place Monday to Friday in both mornings and afternoons. You can choose between 4 (Standard Course) and 6 lessons (Intensive Course) per day, during which students are encouraged and given the support needed to express themselves confidently and communicate freely in English. We try to imbue students with the idea that mistakes are nothing to be ashamed of, and are an essential part of the learning process. Therefore, students are encouraged to take part in discussions and to remember: Practice makes perfect!

Our English lessons are taught by well trained and motivated teachers with plenty of enthusiasm for teaching English to teenagers. We place great emphasis on communication skills and use the latest teaching methods. We structure our classes based around developing grammar, reading, writing, listening, vocabulary and most importantly, conversation.

We believe constant practice in speaking a language leads to confidence and increased fluency, as well as helping to commit new information to memory. The lessons include practice through communicative tasks, project work and intercultural activities, according to the needs of individuals and groups. All classes develop and extend knowledge of grammar and vocabulary and improve communicative skills.

About our Teamers

Sprachcaffe's school in London take caring for our young students very seriously. We carefully select our teamers who guide and watch over their students.

Our trained and friendly teamers offer students in their care individual attention, as each teamer is responsible for a maximum of 15 students. Teamers are 21 years old or older, have good English-speaking skills and are trained in areas like supervision, entertainment, problem-solving, First Aid and teamwork.

We choose our teamers not only for their experience and qualifications, but also their personality, creativity, initiative and sense of responsibility. Prior to the start of the U20 programme, all teamers go through training seminars held over 2-4 days. The candidates are continuously observed throughout the seminar and later in their practical work in the programme. All teamers' criminal record is checked.

The responsibilities of the Teamers

  • T-Shirts: Our teamers always wear Sprachcaffe Teamer t-shirts and are therefore easily recognizable.
  • Dealing with Problems: The teamers are responsible for their students' well-being. They seek to deal with all problems or questions quickly and efficiently.
  • Language: Although most of our teamers are not native English speakers, they speak English at all times, both with students and with each other. This helps to promote the use of the language among students and to improve our students' English-speaking skills. As our teamers come from different countries, however, many students will be able to find at least one teamer that can speak his/her language in an emergency.
