Click&Play English is an exclusive method of computer education entirely in English especially developed for Primary School students.
Click&Play English helps students become familiar with the new technologies and being entirely in English, at the same time learn this essential language in an easy and fun way within their family and school environment.
It is a fully flexible programme, tailored to each age level, with educational objectives suitable for each level and which may be given as a complementary subject or as an extracurricular activity.
Click&Play English places the new technologies within easy reach of Primary School students with a specific methodology tailored to their educational needs and level of psycho-evolutionary development. The English language with which classes are given is not simply a fringe benefit, but rather the environment where everything takes place, thereby leading to a practically unconscious and effortless learning of this language.
Based on fun and motivating activities, theoretical concepts are gradually introduced as the need arises to perform the activities. Games, web pages and stories intrinsic to the English-speaking culture, which allows the student to become familiar with the different customs of the countries where English is the official language.
