High Elementary
Ages: 9 – 11
CEF Level: A1/A2
25 or 12.5 hours/week

This course is suitable for children in their 4th or 5th year of primary English who are able to talk about a range of topics taken from daily life and the wider world.

In addition to lessons describing clothes and appearance, there is an in-depth look at issues concerning food and healthy eating, along with a range of other age-targeted subjects such as sport and the solar system.

At this level, the children will be asked to use their language in slightly more complex ways. Not only will they be giving descriptions, but they will also be using their English to agree and disagree and to give reasons for opinions.

Rangers 1 can be taught side-by-side with Rangers 2 on a two-week course.
