    Need suggestions

    Boy (Jun 05) now attending a local pre-nursery for morning 3 hrs daily. Soon summer holidays coming and I like to get him enrolled in english classes. He is very exposed to cantonese but not much of western english.

    Are there any recommendations out there for 3 hrs classes daily? Thanks.

    Try Baby Buddies/Step 2 under www.letter-land.com
    They run summer courses. We attended their summer programme last year but it was 2 hours not 3.

    I am located in Mid levels. Central preferred but Causeway Bay is fine too.

    Went to Allison's letterland yesterday. was quite a small place though they have 2 foreign teacher and 1 local. Fees is quite reasonable.

    Now evaluating HK Institute of languages/ sunshine house Pok fu lam/ YWCA.

    But my boy extremely active so need 3 hrs prog to keep him really occupied.

    Hi Spockey,

    Allison's letterland is the same premises as Baby buddies in Cleveland St. How would you describe your experience there?

    My boy is quite active and attention span short. There are no enclosed rooms, it is all open space. I wonder if my boy will just wonder away to disturb other students?

    Thanks.

    Oh, my mistake, Baby budddies has 3 premises in Sheung Wan/ Tin Hau/ Tuen Mun. Alison's Letterland is in Cleveland St.

    Hk Instit charges 3 times as much for 3hrs/5 days course. But I guess they are more intensive into teaching English but not so appropriate for my son who only wants to play. I guess a english speaking environment would be enough. So I have went ahead with Alison's letterland for 3 times a week course....

    Thanks anyway.
