What methodology are the #pensariskids Workshops based on?
It’s a program based on an original methodology: learning through movement and motor response. Kids will experience languages and arts through movement, dance, songs, and visual and audio stimulation.
How are the workshops given?
They’re given by video conference in weekly meetings of 30 to 45 minutes. In each one, there are six different activities. Each workshop is composed of a small group of kids (ages 5 to 8) and a live, online teacher who teaches using the six activities with full participation from each one of the small participants.
Are they given in the target language?
They are bilingual. The workshops are given in English/French or Italian and Spanish at all times. The Arts Workshops are in Spanish.

Why PensarisKids fun English?
English classes with a ludic focus from home
Your child connects via video conference together with his group or individually from the comfort of your own home. In one-on-one classes, you can choose the day and time with more flexibility.
Super motivating classes
Each class has a unique central theme that seeks to stimulate the imagination and creativity: stories about animals, playing with dough, blocks, creating art, dances, and moving to facilitate the incorporation of new sounds.
Every teacher is trained in the PensarisKids Method and has a connection with children and ludic content, trajectory, education, and charisma (along with a degree or a TEFL, TESOL, or CELTA certification).
A focus on conversation practice, speaking and listening
From a young age, children incorporate rhythm and musicality from English naturally, as if it were their mother tongue. They do it through games in small groups. We help your child develop his pronunciation and listening.
The fun English program is for ages 3 to 15.
Level 1 is 30 minutes, level 2 is 45 minutes. Then the meetings are an hour and a half weekly.
The programs are annual, lasting from March to November.
Ages 5 – 7
Your child will be able to have simple conversations about familiar topics using:
I can/I can’t/Like-Don’t like
He will learn vocabulary related to his routine, schedule, space, clothing/wardrobe, body parts. He will express emotions.
He will understand short stories, songs, and simple words and phrases.
From ages 7 and up, while maintaining a ludic approach but also incorporating reading and writing and Art & Music projects, we work at six levels that last 50 hours each.
We introduce each child to spoken and written English through everyday interesting, familiar situations. We use audios from different places in the world and we work on projects at the end of each communicative theme, always with a focus on reading and writing, speaking and listening.
