Adult Book Clubs
Reading is a great way to improve all aspects of your English from learning vocabulary and pronunciation to using grammatical structures, and gaining a greater understanding of worlds outside your own. Reading enhances your writing, listening and speaking skills. Students of all levels post-beginner can benefit from a book club.
Classes can be one-to-one or small groups. We select books that match your interests, English level and the time you’re willing to invest. We may choose from a wide range of fiction or non-fiction, graded or ungraded texts, electronic or physical books.
Classes are, as always, customized to your unique needs and interests. During our sessions we may discuss aspects of the narrative, discuss the author’s writing style and explore particular grammatical structures and vocabulary. We may respond creatively to the text in a number of ways. Book clubs provide a fantastic alternative to General English classes, taking you on a comprehensive and immersive learning journey.

Young Learner Book Clubs
You are never too young to become a reader. With younger children we use a wide variety of fantastic picture books and respond to the text by talking about or illustrating parts of the story or linguistic structures used in the text, this may include drawing on paper or using online apps to create pictures and cartoons. With older children we may create presentations, book reports or project work based on a selection of texts.
