Study for language confidence

Through project-based language learning, your child will become a confident user of the English language (and faster).

Building confidence to communicate in an additional language takes guided support and practice, practice, practice.

That is why we take a different approach to your child’s learning. We create opportunities for your child to learn everywhere – a core principal of The Bell Way – through a fully-integrated learning experience based around a theme.

Each week, students work collaboratively to achieve a shared project based on this theme. This project-based approach allows your child to learn inside and outside the classroom, which develops breadth in language use, vocabulary, and encourages fluency.

Of course, it also helps students to discover new interests, hobbies and personal strengths, which is a great bonus!
