Pronti per Cambridge
Ready for Cambridge Programs
Our unique “Pronti per Cambridge” program was developed to meet the needs of very young English language learners. It is offered in our Language and Cultural Centres to children aged between 3 and 5 years of age and also to local Day-care and Kindergarten Centres in each region.
The direct method language learning methodology focuses on teaching the first 1,000 words of the Cambridge English Pre-A1 vocabulary list through song, dance, book readings and fun!
The aim of our Pronti per Cambridge program is to ensure our young English learners are fully prepared and equipped with enough English vocabulary to be ready to begin their formal English language learning when they start school.
HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS
LANGUAGE AND CULTURAL CENTRE PROGRAM
By enrolling directly at one of our Language and Cultural Centres our Young Learners can join a group of other Young Learners, maximum of 5 students per group, and enjoy a weekly hour of fun-filled full English Immersion.
The program is structured to follow the Pre-A1 Cambridge Vocabulary List and at the beginning of each program parents receive a list of the vocabulary taught in the program.
Children receive a Pronti per Cambridge arts folder to store their weekly colouring and activity sheets.
Parents get access to our exclusive online Pronti per Cambridge resource centre to download all the songs, games, worksheets, colouring sheets and pronunciation guides to be able to encourage the use of English within the home.

Depending on the Centre’s specific requirements we can either visit the centre once or twice a week to deliver the program or we can provide a part-time native / mother-tongue English speaker to work in the Centre 4 or 5 mornings per week.
We strive to create an immersive experience at the Centres by not only delivering our program in English but by working with the Teachers and Care-givers at the Centres to bring English into their everyday routines.
Our partners fully embrace the program and begin to promote their Centres as bi-lingual Day-cares and Kindergartens, meaning the children will play, learn and interact in both Italian and English on a daily basis.
There are a number of options available to our Day-care and Kindergarten Partners:
