In foreign language courses, classification of students is required, depending on their age and level. In Learn2Learn learning starts as a game and continues methodically and effectively saving time and money for the parents who are constantly updated through regular evaluation reports and scheduled meetings with our teachers. Learn2Learn prepares students for all certifications approved by the Ministry of Education and the ASEP (British Council, Hellenic American Union, Institut Français d'Athènes and the National Certificate of Language K.Π.Γ). We also prepare candidates for the subjects of English and French for the national entrance exams in university.
We integrate E class in the class of Lower! All classes are strictly in small groups so that teaching can meet the needs of each student without allowing gaps in learning.
According to the communicative and differentiated teaching approach and the Active Learning method we follow in all English levels, teaching is carried out beyond the printed material (student's book, workbook, companion, grammar book, and writing booklet) through the use of new technologies. In our center we take advantage of children’s inclination to modern media in order to enhance understanding and assimilation of information increasing in this way the ability to concentrate, giving additional stimuli.
In all levels we use the innovative educational proposal of the international publishing house MMPublications. In each class every student is given a tablet in a special case with individual headsets. Students under the guidance of the teacher have access in digital educational material related to the curriculum and they learn in the most pleasant and efficient way. Moreover, the teaching becomes even more interesting through the use of the interactive whiteboard.
The pre-junior addresses to five years old pupils who, through the book series Young Stars 1 discover the English language in a pleasant and funny way. Through songs, games, videos, audio cds and cd-rom, comic stories, board games and a wide variety of activities the young students actively participate in the learning process and develop communication skills in the foreign language.
In Junior A pupils learn English in the most pleasant and efficient way through the book Young Stars A. Compelling characters, amusing stories, carefully selected topics according to the age and interests of children, songs and games help pupils to love English from the first moment. At this level students realize how many English words they use in their daily vocabulary, they are taught how to greet, basic instructions useful in the classroom, the English alphabet and the first numbers. The use of new technologies makes the lesson more dynamic, attractive and effective.
In Junior B we go on with the second book in the series Young Stars B where the stories are of course more complex. We revise what is already taught in the previous year and students are also introduced to new grammatical structures, rules and vocabulary. Furthermore our goal is to develop the ability to express in writing.
The senior A level of English is the next of Junior classes. Students put into practice their knowledge in both the speaking and writing.
The Full Blast1,2,3,4 is an exciting series designed for Greek students and is taught in all senior classes. The books attract students' interest with the modern and interesting topics and the pleasant stories which are presented in the form of dialogues.
Students are encouraged to speak English thanks to the cleverly designed and communicative activities. With the step-by-step approach to writing, the composition becomes much easier. The grammar is presented in a clear and understandable way. In addition for further training there is Grammar Book.
Pre-lower E (senior B1) and Β2 Lower
In our school most students who have successfully completed D class can attend B2 Lower class skipping an entire year! Students are prepared for the first certificate in English as defined by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (C.E.F.R.). At this level the student understands the meaning of complex texts, participates in discussions, expresses his views and can present arguments in speaking and writing.
The student at this level can understand a wide range of demanding, longer texts, and recognize implicit meaning. He expresses himself fluently and spontaneously without much obvious searching for expressions and uses the language flexibly and effectively for social, academic and professional purposes. He can produce clear, well-structured, detailed text on complex subjects showing controlled use of organizational patterns, connectors and cohesive devices. Simulation tests (mock tests) are held during the school year in order that the students are fully prepared for the final exams.
This is highest level at which the student can understand with ease virtually everything heard and read. You can summarize information from different spoken and written sources. At this level students can express themselves spontaneously very fluently and precisely, differentiating finer shades of meaning even in more complex situations.
The French language is taught at all levels, starting from pre-school as entertainment and communication process and reaching the last language certificate of the Common European Framework of Reference (C.E.F.R.) C2, Sorbonne II.
At this level pupils have their first contact with the French language and culture through simple words, numbers, games and songs. Emphasis is mostly given to the communication rather to the written speech.
Students identify how many French words they already use in Greek and they are able to participate in daily very simple dialogues. The teaching is based on books (méthode, cahiers d'exercices, grammaire) and interactive digital material. The grammatical structures are introduced through real communication situations and the vocabulary is gradually enriched through songs and games.
Students learn how to greet, to introduce themselves and their family, to ask and answer simple questions and make simple descriptions. The vocabulary and grammar is taught through playful activities that help the assimilation of knowledge.
This level certifies the basic knowledge of the French language. Students can talk about themselves and their immediate environment and they are able to write letters and simple messages to friends and family.
Through simple and ordinary dialogues on familiar daily topics students are invited to communicate using appropriate vocabulary and grammatical structures.
At this level students have to understand the basic guiding ideas of authentic texts drawn from newspapers and magazines concerning a wide range of topics (social, cultural, environmental, economics and technology). The composition is usually about a subject mostly of social interest.
The texts are all authentic and the questions are more complex. As far as it concerns the requirements in vocabulary and grammar, they are particularly high as the student must speak with clarity and coherence presenting arguments and views on various social issues.
Students must already have a very high level of knowledge of the French language and it is advisable to be over 15 in order to cope with a series of written and speaking tests that require critical thinking, combining ability, rich vocabulary and optimum use of the grammatical structures of the French language.
This is the highest level of knowledge of the French language and requires academic and creative skills.
This is a high-level certificate and for this reason, although it is not a prerequisite, it is better for the student to have DELF B1 level. It is a purely literary certificate (examination requires an analysis of two literary books) in contrast to the series DELF-DALF which are communicative certificates.
Students must already have Sorbonne I in order to participate in the exams.
