As the Director of Education, it is a great pleasure to be able to introduce you to our school, Enchanted English!
I began teaching English in Chongqing five years ago. However, as an experienced educator I quickly became disillusioned with the ineffective and out-dated language-teaching methods being used in schools. This was particularly true for young children. From the boy that only knew the English words of colours and animals, to the girl that could only produce just a few basic sentences after 2 years of studying, I found that children were learning the wrong content and in the wrong way. Thus began my journey in search of a solution and after several years of research and remarkable success with numerous students, I am proud to introduce Enchanted English!
Teaching children from 4 to 12 years, Enchanted English finally offers what parents and students have been looking for: an innovative, effective and fun way to learn English! Our method combines the best language teaching principles to ensure that every child learns faster and efficiently. From the start, our talented team has put education first and this is strongly reflected in what we offer, from thirty minute after-class reflections to Weixin communication with children, our Enchanted City and much more.
Please have a look through the website and if there is anything you can’t find or you wish to know more about, you can contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to seeing you and your child enjoying life at Enchanted English soon!

What level of English can I expect my child to reach after 1 year of study?
The English level that each child can achieve at the end of a certain period of study depends on many different factors, making it difficult to accurately predict. However, as a guideline, please see the learning targets that we have set for each course level. We believe that these learning targets are realistic and we provide each child with the necessary platform to achieve them.
How will you measure my child’s progress?
We use a combination of quizzes and reflection time measured against a constantly updated word frequency list. This not only ensures consistent records of your child but ensures that they are learning the relevant language.
Can I select a teacher?
All of our teachers are carefully selected on their suitably to teach children and trained to deliver the Enchanted English method to the highest standard. Therefore, regardless of the teacher, your child will enjoy learning English and make great progress. For this reason we do not offer teacher selection.
How do you enable children to continue learning at home?
On the launch of Enchanted English, home learning tools will be made available to ensure that your child’s learning experience can continue in the home environment. iPad applications, flashcards and unique Enchanted games are some of the exciting things we will offer in Spring 2014.
Can parents join in the classes?
At the end of each six-week story unit there will be an open class in which parents are encouraged to participate in the lesson with their children. We do not allow parents to participate in every class as some children can be negatively affected by adults’ presence in the classroom.
How do you put children into classes?
We arrange classes in two ways: first by age (4-6 years old and 7-10 years old). Secondly we separate children (within each age group) based on their English ability.
Can adults study here?
At present we do not offer adult classes. However we strongly believe that our teaching method is suited to all ages and we are therefore looking at offering adult classes in the future.
