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 teaching tool is a virtual classroom which turns a lesson into an exciting quest!

Parents can easily control their kids' progress through the system of achievements

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 further keeps controlling the progress.

  • Levels and Units

    Novakid program is based on the principles of CEFR and consists of 4 main levels, a special programme for pre-school kids and and advanced speaking intensive course "Time2Talk". Levels consist of units. Each unit has 4 classes of the same topic with a certain grammar, vocabulary and speaking practices.

  • Personal Approach

    Teachers keep under control students' achievements and personal progress. We have added special grammar, speaking and reading classes so the teachers can adjust the curriculum individually for each child!

  • 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.

Personal Approach

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

Certificates

We are convinced that students should have fun at classes and be proud of their progress in English. After completing each level and after Assessment classes Novakid students receive certificates of achievements. And parents can even share these certificates in their social nets!

Certificates of Achievements

We track the progress of our students and regularly send certificates of acquired skills

Level Certificate

At the end of a level students receive the certificate - the first serious achievement in learning English!

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.

Novakid Teachers

We carefully and rigorously select our teachers. After checking diplomas and certificates, we ask them to conduct a ‘live’ demo-class with a Novakid specialist to test the professionalism of the teacher.
