English as a Second Language Courses

English as a Second Language Courses

These English as a Second Language courses are for children who have studied, or are currently studying, English but have not lived in a native English environment.

Here, however, they have the opportunity to develop their English by studying engaging topics with a native English teacher in small groups, following the British curriculum.

All our teachers are native speaker teacher practitioners with a passion for educating children and developing their creativity and critical thinking skills.

All our courses are based on age and language level so children are always recommended courses in which they are with their peers.

Our ESL Courses

English for Beginners ages 6-8 and 8-10

Our Young Beginners’ English classes are fun, interactive courses for children aged 6-10. Through engaging visuals, songs, games, group activities, movement, craft and real-life topics, they will gain a love of learning English and an introduction to phonics, key vocabulary and early communication.


Higher-level English for ages 10-12, 12-14 and 14+

Our higher-level English classes are interactive courses for children aged 10-14 and older. Through collaborative learning projects, hands-on activities and cross-curricular topic learning they will extend their vocabulary, communication fluency and reading and writing levels.


Special-Interest Courses for ages 6-13

Our Special-Interest Thematic courses are for children who wish to develop their English whilst learning about the exciting world of Science or Design. The courses have an input element to build vocabulary and knowledge, and a hands-on component, using activities and experiments or creating and presenting their own artwork to provide opportunities to use academic English.

Testimonials from Afterschooler Parents

Andrew, Max’s dad

Max enjoys the [Rock and Roll, Baby!] classes, where there is much singing, movement, instrument playing (bashing!) and games.  There is also half an hour before hand of tea/biscuits and English chat.  It’s a great set up.  I would recommend to anyone.

David, Ali’s dad

“Our son has grown hugely in confidence in speaking English and has greatly expanded his vocabulary from his classes at BAS over the past 2 years. He has benefitted from exposure to a stimulating range of subjects and new ideas – and has made good friends. It has been great!”

Jonathan, Cosimo’s dad

The Budapest Afterschool has been one of the most fantastic decisions we’ve made for our child. He is growing up with three languages which has been very difficult on him. Prior to joining the school he was barely speaking at all, saying at most just a few words. He was also extremely shy any time someone tried to speak to him. After just the first few months of attending, our son began to turn in to a chatter box and started to actively respond and speak to people. His English speaking continues to strengthen and the school has now become his favourite part of the week.

Stella, Cosimo’s mum

The staff employs multiple ways of engaging with the children, teaching them through interaction and via various activities that has them excited before, during and after the classes. They also host multiple events which provide opportunities for both networking and continuing exposure to the language outside of a classroom setting for the kids. And lest I forget to mention it is staffed by some of the loveliest people we’ve had the privilege of getting to know since we moved here!

Kriszta, Bori’s mum

This school is a cool opportunity to acquire a foreign language to a native-like level, while the students studying here receive up-to-date and fascinating knowledge about the world.
