Why do parents love Teddy Eddie?
My child’s enthusiasm towards English classes; friendly and regular communication with the teacher; detailed reports concerning class content and my child’s progress; teacher-parent cooperation.
My daughter “picked up” English very fast, even though she was 2.5 years old when she started to attend classes. I think that she has learned a lot. She speaks Polish at home but she tends to add some English words, for example: “I’m wearing a pink blouse” or “Granddad is putting on his sock”. She really likes learning English and enjoys listening to the course recordings. I’m totally satisfied. Thank you!
Klara really enjoys the course and actively participates in classes. I can see results at home. I don’t have to spend much time teaching her English – she learns new things easily.
Direct contact with the teacher; visible progress with English skills; the ability to participate in open classes for parents; my daughters’ interest in English lessons – they keep asking when the next class is.
Regular teacher-parent communication; great teacher-students rapport; highly appealing teaching methods; the fact that, contrary to our expectations, my son has actually “absorbed” quite a lot of material : )
The joy on the face of my child when we’re leaving for classes. Nice surprises on part of my child when she spontaneously uses a word she has remembered (for example, on meeting her aunt who was wearing black, she said: “You’re black!”).
I can see that my child really enjoys the course. I receive all information about my son’s progress. Overall, I’m satisfied with the teaching method.
Grzegorz Śpiewak, Ph.D., is the Ambassador of the method
The undisputed authority in the field of teaching foreign languages. As the authors of the Teddy Eddie method, we are proud that Doctor Śpiewak has endorsed our approach and shares our philosophy of teaching young children.
Teddy Eddie is a unique concept of teaching English to children of preschool and early primary school age on the Polish and European educational markets. Teddy Eddie stands out among the competition thanks to a coherent methodological concept, integrating selected elements of a number of classic methods in an innovative way, and adapting them to the reality of teaching young children in the 21st century. This smart, cohesive eclecticism, supported by many years of authors’ experience, is a fool-proof formula for educational success. Highly recommended!
