Welcome to our English Class

Welcome to our English Class

At this age, we create a space where little children can feel comfortable learning and playing in English. We read stories, work on phonics, use pencils and colours, and play with flashcards and other games.
Marc López

Primary School Year One:
At this level it´s important to start working on the written part carefully. We revise the alphabet and play games to teach the spelling of new words. Also, we play other games, which involve counting or actions. We have a lot of fun!
 Marc López

Primary School Year Two:

We always start our classes with a game in which we use the vocabulary and structures presented in previous lessons. Then we present a new concept and we watch a short video or we listen to some song related to the topic we are discussing. After that we practise what we have learned using the exercises in the book and/or with activities from other sources, such as letter soups, memory games and crosswords. The aim is to learn English through games and fun activities so the children don’t even realize that they’re studying!
 Mª José Trujillo

Primary School Year Three:
 At this level, our students learn the grammar and vocabulary which they need to express themselves in English in an entertaining and creative way. We use textbooks and different activities and games to teach them to communicate in spoken English.
Marta Serrano

Primary School Years Four and Five:
At this level, it´s more important to use and practise the language rather than studying it. We create a space to learn vocabulary in different ways, reading stories and articles and playing games which imply speaking and writing.
Marc López

Primary School Year Six:
At this level we work to consolidate the past tenses, which includes knowing when to use each of them. We also teach vocabulary in relation with travel, adventures and leisure activities. The aim is to encourage the children to say something about their hobbies, weekends, summer holidays and similar topics. We spend most of the time talking and interacting in English. We discover a lot of things about our class mates that we didn't know before!
Guillem Burballa

Secondary School Pre-Intermediate Level:
At this level we teach more complex grammatical and vocabulary concepts. Our topics include, for example, describing  a person, both physically and psychologically. Wherever possible we use games and dynamic activities. For example, we pretend to be walking dictionaries and we explain the meaning of words and expressions in English in our own words!
Guillem Burballa

Secondary School Upper-Intermediate Level:
At this level our aim is to work towards the Cambridge First Certificate in English. We practise the contents of the written exam and we also prepare for the exam interview with speaking activities on typical exam topics such as interests, weekend activities and travel.

Carnival has arrived!

Carnival has arrived!
At Chelsea House we also celebrate Carnival! That´s why we paint and cut our masks to decorate our classrooms. 

Students can choose among different ones, such as Venice mask, frog mask, butterfly, seasons mask and moon mask. We also do some exercises in the book about this festivity, Carnival is fun!

It's Christmas time!

Christmas is getting close and we are dedicating part of our class time to Christmas activities.
We are decorating the classroom with materials produced by the children themselves. The teacher comments on the material as the children produce them.
We also learn and sing Christmas carols. The older children have chosen the carols themselves and we have selected carols for the younger children which are suitable for their level of English. 
We work on the specific vocabulary and pronunciation of these carols and we also brainstorm other Christmas vocabulary which the children write on the board.
All of these activities are designed to give children practice with the two most basic skills of language learning: listening and speaking.
We have also included the concept of solidarity as part of the Christmas spirit.
