Starts May 9 - HSK - English School for Native Speakers (4 - 5 year old)

HSK - English School for Native Speakers (4 - 5 year old)

Are you a native English speaker with a child at home who has also learned English as a first language? They can now improve their language skills at the LiLi Centre’s established English Language School for Children, an officially recognized program by the canton Luzern’s Heimatliche Sprach und Kultur (HSK) department.

The goal behind this program is to help children master core English skills and elevate their English education beyond what is currently offered in local public/private schools. Such skills not only help with learning German at school, but also help children establish their own identity, prepare them for contact with relatives, and help with a return to English-speaking culture in later years.


The program is open to English-speaking children ages 4-11. Kids will learn reading, writing, spelling, history, culture, and grammar from tutors fluent in the English language. The curriculum, designed by certified English instructor Joanna ChristenGlennie, is based off the Nelson English Skills Courses from Oxford University Press.

The classes are offered in 12-week semesters (in line with public school schedules) and take place on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. We now have 4 different classes for different age ranges: Wednesday 13:30 – 15:00 for 7 – 8 year old
Wednesday 15:30 – 17:00 for 9 – 11 year old
Thursday 13:30 – 15:00 for 4 – 5 year old
Thursday 15:30 - 17:00 for 5 -6 year old

Class size ranges from 3 to 10 children. All pupils will be assessed on their skills and given a grade and report on their performance. There is a required fee for the semester; please inquire with the school coordinator regarding costs.
