As schools close for the summer, the burning question for many parents in the UAE is, what their children can do if they are not travelling abroad? For a child’s holistic development, it is important for them to be engaged in meaningful activities such as learning a language, arts & crafts, self-defence or computer skills.
Eton Institute in Dubai and in Abu Dhabi offers meaningful educational activities that are conducted only during the summer months and help cultivate learning skills in children. The Institute has witnessed a surge in demand for its language courses for kids, from parents who would like their children to develop their multi-lingual skills and stay indoors away from the heat.
Sue Brett, Head of Academic Studies at Eton Institute remarked: “Numerous studies have revealed that children with multi-lingual skills tend to have better overall analytical, social and academic skills and fare better in adult life with a proven advantage over their mono-lingual counterparts. Multi-lingual children are also tolerant of other languages and cultures, and have an ability to think more creatively.”
The summer kids' programme at Eton Institute will cater to children from the ages of 4-16 years with tailor made courses to suit the needs of different age groups. The fun language activities will be available in six languages namely, English, Arabic, French, Spanish, Italian and German. With convenient afternoon timings, small group sizes and daily classes' parents can be assured that their kids are using their energy constructively.
The fun and activity based courses are taught by highly trained professionals who make learning a new language easy. The intensive kids’ summer courses are scheduled to start in two sessions. The first session starts on the 8th of July and the second on the 29th of July with convenient morning and afternoon timings. Anyone booking a course at Eton Institute this summer would also be eligible for the ‘Win Trips Around the World’ summer promotion and enter a chance to WIN an all-expenses paid trip to Hong Kong, New York or Paris. The winners will be announced at the end of each month.
