Our mission is to support children in developing solid language and literacy skills
Avery Hill Education language programmes for early years, primary and secondary students are delivered through structured and fun online courses. We believe that language immersion, particularly from a young age, lays solid educational and developmental foundations.
Our programmes were developed by the founder and CEO of Avery Hill Education Limited, Isabel Serra. A London-based MFL teacher with over 15 years’ experience across primary, secondary and adult educational sectors, Isabel was driven to develop language learning programmes that truly inspired a love of learning in children and teenagers. The goal was to create something which laid the foundations for language success but, in the process, considered the wider needs of the child learner.
Extensive research was undertaken to establish how young learners acquire a second language. Our programme, Let’s Learn & Play, is designed for children aged between 4 and 5 years old and focuses on the use of stories and role-play games to ignite interest in language acquisition. Let’s Learn & Play was followed by Let’s Learn & Read, a programme designed for children aged between 5 and 8 years old which supports language and reading competencies. We then moved our attention to primary pupils (9 to 11 years old) and secondary students (12 to 18 years old), and created the programmes The Language Learner and The Bilingual Student which are tailored to meet the specific needs of language learners and bilingual students.
Avery Hill Education teaching team is now composed of senior language experts and online native speaking language teachers who contribute to the creation and delivery of our online courses.
