Programs and Methodology

Learning by Immersion

Why learning with Novakid is so effective?

At Novakid children learn English as a native language! Students' skills are trained in a live communication with native speakers. A class is organized in a fun yet efficient way and lasts for 25 minutes so that kids do not lose concentration and acquire and retain the material more effectively. The main teachering tool is a virtual classroom which turns a lesson into an exciting quest!

Novakid program is built in accordance with A1 and A2 levels of the European CEFR standard.

Programs and Levels

Novakid program is built in accordance with the A1 and A2 levels of the European CEFR standard, which corresponds to the Cambridge English YLE Starters, Movers and Flyers tests. At a trial class, teachers determine the level of English and give recommendations for further educational process. If a student progresses faster, they can be moved to the next level.

  • Levels

    Novakid program is based on the principles of CEFR and consists of 5 levels: Level 0 (Let's begin - for preschool kids), Level 1 (Let's Continue), Level 2 (Starters), Level 3 (Movers), Level 4 (Flyers). A student's level is tested by a teacher at the test lesson.

  • Units

    Levels consist of units. A Unit is a set of classes on one topic. Each unit introduces a new vocabulary and grammar, trains pronunciation and speaking. Units mainly consist of 4 lessons. Every 4th lesson reviews the material of the topic.

  • Class Length

    A lesson lasts for 25 minutes. This is a perfect time when a child does not get tired and is able to learn the material. Studies confirm that at individual classes (especially with a native speaker!) workload is much bigger than in group settings.

Certificates

At the trial class, the teacher tests the level of English and assigns the student to the appropriate level. If the child progresses faster, they can be moved to the next level.

Monthly Report on Achievements

We track the progress of children by testing their level of speaking, reading, vocabulary and listening comprehension.

Oxford Testing

TPR Method (Total Physical Response)

When using Total physical response (TPR) method, a teacher not only shows slides but performs the material with gestures, facial expressions and movements. Children are happy to repeat movements after teachers and learn the material much faster and more efficiently.

Together with the communicative approach, TPR method gives good results. We see that after a month of regular lessons even children who have not studied English before, begin to speak.
