Now in our tenth year, Chat English makes learning English fun and easy for students of all ages. Chat English classes provide just the right mix of structured study and interactive experiences to allow students to develop their English skills at a natural pace. All of our materials are custom made to match the interests and abilities of each unique class. Courses are designed around fun and easy to understand themes, with a focus on communication skills, phonics, and grammar points.

We teach students to naturally use the phrases they have learned in each class, so that the longer they study, the greater the number of opportunities they have to continuously develop their English skills. However our students are expected to not only have excellent communication skills, but also to have a strong understanding of the basic rules of English phonics and English grammar, giving them an advantage when it comes time to study for middle school and high school English tests! We believe that students must have a real life understanding of the English language before they can truly develop meaningful reading and writing skills, so, of course, we learn not only through traditional instruction and bookwork, but also by encouraging our students to engage their own native "curiosity" with a variety of genuine experiences, like games, conversations, and real world objects.

We adhere to a strict policy of age appropriate instruction. Designed especially for very young learners and taught exclusively by native speakers, Chat's preschool and kindergarten English classes introduce basic vocabulary - like colors, animals, and fruits & vegetables - and give our students the tools they need to begin making English conversation on their own. These lessons include lots of song and dance, arts & crafts, exciting English-based toys, and other engaging activities sure to appeal to young children. In elementary school classes, native instructors use a mix of games, group study, and book work to teach students the essential skills of reading & writing, as well as making conversation in English. Lessons are designed around fun and easy-to-understand themes, like foods, sports, and occupations, that help students expand their vocabulary while mastering the basics of English grammar. Even our middle school, high school, and adult classes offer fun and easy lessons and activities, as teachers lead small groups in engaging conversation classes that include a variety of approaches, such as mixed media, games, textbooks, music, and free talk.  Great instructors and a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere help all students, regardless of ability level, become better English speakers. Learning English is fun, and "Yes, I DO speak English!"
