我们的课堂积极向上、充满活力,幽默风趣,与传统的教学手段相比,我们更侧重于听力理解和口语表达。 我们坚信 TPR 方法(全身反应教学方法法),更适合英语初学者和年轻学习者。

In each 25 minute class we will inspire and motivate your child through role play, games, props, chants and songs. We take special care with pronunciation, encouraging our students to express themselves with clarity and confidence. While our focus is on standard British English, we make sure to expose students to a variety of accents.

在 25 分钟的课程中,我们利用角色扮演、游戏、道具、吟咏和歌曲等丰富的感知交互方式,启发和激励孩子们交流。 我们更注重孩子的发音,鼓励学生能够清晰而自信地表达。我们的重点是标准的英式英语,我们也确保让学生接触到标准的各种口音。

Your child is in good hands with us, we’ve been teaching Chinese kids for years. Thus we are familiar with the common errors and specific pronunciation and grammar challenges facing young Chinese learners.

我们一直在教中国孩子如何学习并习得英语, 多年教学互动经验积累,我们非常了解第二语言年轻学习者学习过程中出现的常见错误和所面临的具体的发音与语法挑战。

We employ a wide array of materials, including internationally recognised course books, homemade flashcards, computer images, illustrations and real world props. We are also happy to work with materials from your child’s school. In fact, all our lessons are tailor-made depending on the specific needs of each student.

我们使用丰富有趣的材料,包括国际认可度高的教材,并利用自制的闪卡、图片、影像等形象的道具辅助提高教学效果。 我们也很乐意使用您孩子学校指定的教材,解决课内难题。 事实上,我们更希望所有的课程都是根据每个学生的具体需求量身定制,让每个孩子以适合自己的方式学习和成长。

After every class, we provide a full report on your child’s performance, including a summary of the material covered with an audio/video guide for continued practice and review.

每节课后,我们都会提供一份关于您孩子表现的完整报告,包含上课的主要内容和音频/视频指导以供继续练习和复习。

We named our school Umbrella English for a number of reasons. In Britain almost everyone has an umbrella, because we live on a rainy island. It is a symbol of guidance and protection. Indeed we are committed to holding the umbrella high and guiding our students through the occasional grey days and unsettled weather of language learning.

出于多种原因,我们将我们学校命名为雨伞英语。 在英国,几乎每个人都有一把雨伞,因为我们住在一个多雨的岛上。 雨伞是引导和保护的象征。我们有个美好的愿望:高举雨伞,引导我们的学生度过偶尔灰色的日子和语言学习的不稳定时期。

What’s more, turn an umbrella upside down and you’ve got a little boat! The perfect vehicle to safely carry you through the various oceans of vocabulary and grammar.

你发现了吗?把雨伞倒过来,你便拥有了一条小船!它是一件能安全地带你穿越词汇与语法的海洋的完美工具。

I love to travel and hope to return to China with Leighton for a long trip. Perhaps we’ll meet! When I’m not teaching, you can usually find me making a mess in the kitchen, reading fiction and nonfiction books, or practising my rusty Spanish. My dream is to write a children’s book one day!
