​Welcome to our afternoon classes

for  English Speakers aged 4 - 18 

in Therwil and Riehen

Our English for English Speakers classes are for children ages 4 - 18 who attend local schools (starting from the first year of kindergarten) and speak English at home with at least one parent.  They are also appropriate for non-English speaking children who have gone to school in an English-speaking environment.


Days and Times

TherwilClasses in Therwil meet 1 time per week  for 1, 1.5 or 2 hours.

RiehenClasses in Riehen meet 1 time per week  for 1 or 1.5 hours.

See our Timetable for more details.

Our goals

We teach fundamental skills for fluent and effective communication including:

  • confident speaking

  • reading for understanding

  • spelling

  • grammar

  • punctuation 

  • writing with purpose

Our Reading Program

To promote confidence and accuracy in reading, our reading assistant reads one-on-one with our emergent readers and younger children.  Children receive a new reading book from our library every week so they can practice reading  at home with their parents.


The children achieve such impressive results in the short classroom time we have and parents can help significantly by working with their children at home as well.  Homework is set on a regular basis, usually in the form of reading, practising for spelling tests or extra practise of work done in class.  Children will assimilate new information much faster through repetition and practise at home.
