What parents are saying…
The ENS modules are beautifully designed and well thought through. They use themes that children enjoy and avoid the mundanity of simply asking kids to regurgitate grammar and spelling rules. My son didn’t realise how much his English was improving as he was simply absorbed in the fun activities." Vanessa E, Munich
Mathis attended a British school until the 4th grade. When we repatriated we were worried he might lose his English. I am so grateful we found ENS! The tasks are entertaining, motivating and follow the German curriculum. We definitely recommend ENS and will join next year as well." Hanne Lutz
ENS has improved my son’s English spelling & reading, offered a deeper understanding of social studies topics & prevented boredom during English classes. The curriculum is well planned, the tasks are engaging & the program is intuitive and easy to follow." Helen Williams
About the Instructor
Hello! My name is Susan Jane Alexiadis. I help bilingual and Expat children to achieve a native level of English literacy by offering an innovative learning programme
In 2016, I realised that the English lessons at our local “Grundschule” just weren’t going to cut the mustard for our half-Australian 8-year-old daughter. I had visions of her becoming the class clown, or worse. So I began to hatch a cunning plan…

Structure of the unit
Task 1 is where you recognise and recall things. It begins in the forest, where you write down all the things you encounter there. You have the choice of EITHER making a “Y-Chart” of how the forest looks, sounds and feels (option 1A) OR creating a tree diagram to sort everything into categories (option 1B).
Task 2 is where you explain things. You have the choice of EITHER recounting what happened when you visited the forest (option 2A) OR informing people how they should behave in a forest (option 2B) OR testing your parents on the differences between certain trees using a set of self-written riddles (option 2C).
Task 3 is where you use information in a new way. EITHER use your artistic talent to draw a diagram showing the layers of a forest (option 3A) OR work your magic with words by writing a report on a forest plant/animal (option 3B) OR by explaining why leaves fall from trees in Autumn (option 3C).
Task 4 is where you break information into parts and explore how they fit together. You can EITHER take a closer look at one tree in great detail (option 4A) OR explore how two trees are similar and different (option 4B) OR put four different trees under the microscope (option 4C).
Task 5 is where you justify your own opinion. You can EITHER choose which tree of the forest you would like to be and explain the reasons for your choice (option 5A) OR argue for or against the logging of rainforests, giving reasons (option 5B).
Task 6 is where you invent something of your very own. Choose between EITHER writing a letter to a group of school children who are about to visit a forest OR composing a catchy forest song to get everyone’s toes tapping OR designing a comic strip to teach children the importance of forests (and get a few laughs along the way).
