How do you know what English level does your child have?


The level of English is usually indicated in the child's textbook.

If the child does not have any textbook yet, he/she probably has A0 level.

Kindergarten children usually have A0, primary school children usually have A0-A1, secondary school children usually have A1-A2, high school students usually have A2-B1. But it's individual.

You don't have to worry much with children, because we check the English level of your child during the first class and then choose the appropriate material for your child.
