Methodology

TLC focuses on engaging students so that learning is fun and both children and adults are actively involved in the learning process. The classrooms are warm and welcoming and teaching is highly engaging.

Learning goes beyond the classroom through the use of the library and media centre. All students are encouraged to use their newfound skills at home and on holiday.

We encourage critical and creative thinking through discussion and debates so that students develop language skills for everyday and academic life.
