English as a Second Language

English as a Second Language gives our students the ability to communicate their individuality and confidence at an international level, expanding their opportunities in San Juan del Sur and beyond. We have developed our own curriculums that make learning fun, interactive and effective.

Students advance through our four levels of English with a focus on speaking and conversation. The material taught in these classes is practiced and reinforced through our English Games and Conversation Classes, where students learn through play. The most popular games with the students include jeopardy, pictionary, charades, flashcard games, word races, unscrambling sentences and other activities that incorporate the vocabulary and key sentences into a fun and active learning environment.
