Following is a list of some of the most common questions we receive. If you have any further inquiries please contact our offices.
Much of this depends on what course you place your child in as well as their attendance; however our Preschool and Kindergarten programs are the most effective courses. They are not only incredibly fun but also teach children through experience and interaction. The children attending these courses learn as a child of a native English speaker would and their vocabulary and pronunciation is more likely to exceed any expectation you may have.
Children are avid learners and have more ability then someone parents give them credit for. As any child learns their native tongue through, gestures, expressions, vocal tones & mimicking others, so will your child begin learning English at school. At any OGA school we have bilingual teachers ready to assist and communicate with children in their native tongue until they are able to communicate their needs in English. During this learning process we are always there to listen, teach and help children in their every need.
OGA students benefit from low student teacher ratio of an average 1 teacher to every 5 students.
Our class sizes are kept to an average of 10 students per class enabling students and teacher to grow a strong bond as well as guarantee a safe and positive learning experience for each child.
We closely follow an American curriculum however we have tailored our curriculum to fix the local school. Additional studies of the local culture and holidays have been included in our curriculum to give our students a maximum educational experience.
The main difference is their long tern commitment to OGA as well as their qualifications and experience. On top of this is both our foreign staff and national staff work closely together ensuring a warm and friendly place for our students. At OGA all staff is responsible for the wellbeing of each child. In many schools the foreign staff merely instruct during “lesson time”, however at OGA we pride ourselves in having both native English speakers and national teachers there every minuet of the day to teach, play, and care for our students. This includes personal hygiene and meal times, making a fuller and more complete learning experience for ours students, providing them with a real, full day of English.
