English course through language immersion

Learn English naturally

Your child learns the new language with their personal native coach in a fun and playful way. We don’t use a school setting, rather language immersion to achieve language goals. This way, your child will, as far as possible, be in an English environment one afternoon a week. At the moment, our individual childcare program is available in Vienna, Graz, Linz, Salzburg and Innsbruch!

WHY?

A second language in an early age

Your child will learn English in the same way as they are learning or have learned their first language. The average child can learn 3 language simultaneously with no issues. Don’t wait until your child can speak their first language perfectly, as their natural language learning ability will begin to lessen around age 3. From age 7, only normal teaching methods such as those used in school are effective, unless one moves to an English-speaking country or uses the new language daily.

Our strategy

 

Our service differs significantly from the usual language schools with group lessons. All of our native coaches look after just one child (potentially with siblings, maximum 3 children), there are no groups.

Our concept is based on language immersion, a proven educational and linguistic method.

Our coaches will only ever speak and understand English, which gently motivates your child to use the language themselves.

Our service

 

We find a suitable native coach (male or female) for your son or daughter. Our coach supports your child using our concept, allowing for a natural introduction to the new language.

The optimal age to start is before your child’s first birthday, up to at most the 8th or 9th birthday. The older the child, the more learning elements we include.

Our employees build a relationship with your child that is as if they were a family friend (who happens to speak English!) – week for weed, month for month.

Picking up the child

The pick-up and drop-off of your child can be freely arranged. For instance from kindergarten, school, after-school club, a sport club, at your house or somewhere else!

When your child has been picked up of dropped off, you can be notified by an SMS if you so wish. We then bring your child home at the agreed time.

Activity program

For children around 4 years and older, we can create an outdoor activity program. This is put together taking your and your child’s wishes into consideration.

Our experience with other children allows us to advise you about the various opportunities available,from sport to culture, to a simple visit to a shopping centre, park, museum or zoo.

Safety

Safety is our top priority, we always know where our coaches are with your child.i8

In case of illness we notify you immediately. You decide if we should send a different coach, skip the session (at no cost to you) or postpone it.

Reports

You will, of course, be kept up to date. What we did, where we were, what went on – we can also provide photos of your little one!

We can send the picture via email or through our communication platform. You can use this platform to coordinate the next sessions with your coach.

More options

As our concept only works when the relationship between your child and our coach is longterm, we have a range of further options for you, which can be booked as and when you need them. Including:

  • Ski or beach holiday
  • Weekend trips
  • City trips
  • Birthday party/summer party

Development

Of course you want to be kept abreast of your child’s progress with English. As we don’t follow a school-based concept but take a natural, playful route to English proficiency, progress is very individual and can happen in sudden bursts.

As a rule, it is safe to say that the younger the child is, the quicker our progress will be. Children under the age of 7 have far greater recall capacity than older children.

Activities

 

Depending on your child’s age, and of course the weather, our coach spends the afternoon with them INDOORS or also OUTDOORS.

With younger children or when the weather is bad, we play, paint, craft, sing and dance in your home – sometimes we might even bake a cake, if we are allowed to! Your child feels comfortable there, and also has all of their toys, books and crafting supplies available.

With older children (3 or 4+) we start to go on short excursions that get longer with time. For instance:

  • A visit to the zoo, nature park, playground, aquarium etc.
  • Seeing child-friendly English-language films at the cinema or plays at the theatre.
  • sports (by arrangement and depending on the season)
  • everyday activities (going to the shopping centre, taking the underground or bus…)
  • we also accompany your child when it comes to hobbies – taking them to chess club or football training for example.
Our institute

Our native speakers

Thanks to our coaches, your child has the opportunity to learn the language directly from a native English speaker. All of our coaches grew up in England, America, New Zealand, Australia or another country where English is the official language, or have lived there for a minimum of 10 years during their childhood.

The coach's qualifications

All of our coaches have completed a basic pedagogical course and a first aid course. They have experience of working with children and must adhere to our safety regulations.

Comprehensive checks

All of our employees must provide a clear criminal record specifically for working with childre and young people. We also check their references. The coaches must show their skills on a trial day, spending several hours with selected children (most often, the native4kids founder’s children).

Professional development

All of our coaches are offered several professional development opportunities each year. In this way, we ensure that our concept is understood correctly and that the success of your child is guaranteed.

Activities and teaching materials

Every month we create a list of activities, and for older children learning materials for the coach to use with your child. We are also a licensed partner of USBORNE, the leading publisher of children’s books. USBORNE has a selection of around 4000 English books for children from 0 to 18!

Coaches' language

All coaches will use only English when spending time with your child. If they happen to have some knowledge of German, this will remain a secret to you and your child! This way, we motivate your child to actively speak English themselves.

Coaches' age

We employ younger coaches, often students, as well as older, more experienced people, both male and female. Together we will decide which of our employees is the best fit for your child.
