Description

KKCL is proud to have been welcoming English language students for more than 17 years.

We are accredited by the British Council and a  member of English UK and are committed to the highest standards of education and welfare.

WELCOME TO KKCL JUNIORS

Many schools offer workshops and standard English lessons, but very few can offer the integrated experience that we do through our unique project based Go Create! English syllabus, taught by dynamic and inspirational teachers. 

This exciting programme of themed lessons covers different aspects of popular culture and has been designed to offer students the highest level of experiential learning.

How We Teach:

  • English is the only language used in the classroom at all times!
  • Throughout the course, Task Based & Project Based Teaching and Learning methodology is used to help students develop their 21st Century skills of Collaboration, Creativity, Critical Thinking and Intercultural Competence
  • Teaching techniques to utilise multimedia and film adaptations of classic novels are used as scaffolding to help students engage with a literary text in a modern era of technology. There is a focus on understanding British Culture through literature as a mirror of society. Students explore alternative uses of written texts developing their speaking, listening, reading and writing skills 
  • Each day, students work on a variety of tasks, building up to a bigger project at the end of the day to showcase students’ improved language skills and cultural understanding
  • Drama teaching techniques used during the lessons are aimed at increasing students’ confidence to help them become better communicators in English
  • Teacher guided peer and self-assessment is incorporated into the syllabus, with self-evaluation strategies used throughout the course to measure students’ progress, and to raise awareness about the importance of students’ taking control of their own learning 

Cultural & Extra-Curricular Programme

We make every minute of the Go Create! English experience a teachable moment! There is a direct link between classroom based learning experience and places students visit during their stay.  Activity Leaders and Homestays Hosts are trained in basic teaching techniques to facilitate conversations with students so that every opportunity for learning is taken.

Visits to places of historic and cultural interest around London will broaden students’ knowledge of the UK, whilst giving them first hand experience of modern as well as historic ways of British life, which will complement their language learning and create memorable experiences to take back to their own country.

With Go Create! English students can have fun learning English and learn new skills too!

Exam Preparation for Groups

We prepare closed groups of students for Trinity, Language Cert, TELC and Cambridge exams as required. Generally, these exams will take place on the final day of school. We are a registered examination centre for Trinity, Language Cert and TELC.
