Why make English fun?

 When English is learned as a spoken language rather than a list of words and rules  the language is absorbed naturally without a lot of translation and drilling. 

 When children learn English in a natural, non-threatening environment they feel comfortable speaking and understanding English in context. 

 Learning and retention of a foreign language are improved by the use of songs and physical movement.

 

 

English is Fun groups (in or after school)

Programs are available for children from pre-K through 6th grade. They are based on songs, games, drama, movement, stories and crafts.
