WHY CONVENTIONAL PROGRAMS FAIL WHY CONVENTIONAL PROGRAMS FAIL

Conventional systems, which emphasize analytical reasoning and grammar, fail to retain the interest of young students, who may not have enough knowledge of the language to begin with. Moreover, these programs do not provide sufficient support materials for teachers-integrated, multi-format materials that enable them to progressively build their lessons over time to develop the required language proficiency in their students.

 

WHY GRAPESEED IS SO SUCCESSFUL

 

ONLY GRAPESEED OFFERS:

 

A development core based on 45 years of classroom experience and breakthrough educational research. A foundational structure based on the proven and acclaimed functional-notional learning methodology that works similarly to the way a child learns to speak her mother tongue.

A conversational, progressive approach that focuses on learning the most essential language skills first. World-class, top-quality multi-media content that engages children and makes learning fun! A comprehensive support framework, including hands-on training, teaching manuals, and student materials.  

 

THE GRAPESEED ADVANTAGE:

 

GrapeSEED has been developed because conventional English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) programs are not designed for early childhood education and do not teach English in the way children naturally learn a new language.  GrapeSEED leverages and builds on a child-centered, functional-notional language learning structure. one that requires no grammatical or analytical thinking, yet allows students to meet academic objectives that are more advanced than those that conventional programs can achieve.

 

With a cutting-edge program and entertaining teaching materials, GrapeSEED makes English language learning not only possible, but fun! GrapeSEED works wonders… while students play!
