Saturday and Sunday English for Young Learners

Updated: Nov 25, 2020

Our weekend English program has continued to be highly popular as well as very successful in delivering results. Our young learners range in age from 2 years old all the way to 10 years of age.

For our young learners, we recommend you try out a weekend English session. The classes meet on Saturday (9:00am - 10:30am and 10:30am - Noon) and Sunday from 10:00am - 11:30am. These English students learn the alphabet, vocabulary and reading. This very popular group of classes is taught by American teachers that expose children to basic English phrases, the alphabet and counting. Kids also learn the phonetic pronunciation of letters as well as American Sign Language (ASL) as a further tool to aid in communication.

Language by nature is very abstract and intangible. Children, on the other hand, are very literal and concrete. This makes it challenging to explain grammar or syntax rules to children. Don’t worry, we have the answer.


Our approach to teaching youngsters keeps it simple. We follow four basic rules:

  1. Keep it fun

  2. Be creative

  3. Make it active

  4. Don’t put pressure on students

Through songs, dancing and reading, students mix social time with learning time. That mix of talking, reading and playing works magic for these young learners. They not only develop better English reading skills, but these young weekend students also advance their social skills using conversational English. They gain confidence weekly and their use of English words grows and grows.


This 8-week class also includes a 2-month membership to Spark Alternative Learning Center’s online library of more than 40,000 books. That is a great value to students and their parents.

At times the classes become full and cannot accept new students. When a class becomes full, parents can add their child to a waitlist for the full class so that when a slot becomes open you will be notified.

There are many reasons to consider enrolling your child in Saturday or Sunday morning English classes. The first reason is the fun factor. The kids absolutely love the time spent with other children. The second reason is really for the parents. If you wish for your child to learn English from a certified teacher and native English speaker from the United States, these weekend classes are a great start.

After the child starts to show improvement and wants to advance further and quicker, many parents then opt to increase the hours their child spends in Spark’s learning environment by sending them to additional classes in the evenings or enrolling them in fun extra curricular activities like Art, Enterprise City, Design By Me or many other classes where English is required and the kids are having a great time learning and socializing.
