More about Stewart Languages

Continuous encouragement

Research shows that learning sessions in which students get positive feedback from the teacher and a gentle (not critical) correction, causes children to attend classes, helps them become better and learn happily, becoming proud of them!

International and interactive methods

Learning can be fun! Our methods motivate, create memorable moments and a special affinity for English. We want to create a solid foundation for the future success of children.

Native Teachers

Learning from a native speaker has the benefits of exposing the child to various cultures, concepts, ways of thinking and learning authentic language in a natural way. The interactive content, which includes vocabulary games, makes English classes so much fun that kids don’t feel the learning effort!

Small groups

Small groups (maximum 6 children) ensure the conversation of each child with the teacher at each lesson. Small groups allow teachers to get to know children better, helping them to adapt their lessons to their needs and level. Dedicated attention makes children get involved and learn with enthusiasm.

Learn English from anywhere

We organize online English courses. Now your child can take English classes right inside the house.

Our native English teachers will interact and teach online, using interactive and engaging learning methods.
