Weird and Wonderful
Bugs and dinosaurs bring English alive! Students make short presentations, write articles and create their own word searches and quizzes. This process of discovery advances both their spoken and written English.
Learn through Movies
Is your child glued to the TV screen? If so, this might be the perfect programme! Venture has developed innovative methods over 25 years for the effective use of videos as a teaching medium. Students guess the dialogue through a silent playing, predict endings, create beginnings, devise role play scenes and much more. This appealing programme will enrich your child’s understanding of English and show the value of non-verbal language.
Read out loud a variety of poems: funny, romantic and serious. Learn how to read with impact, which words require emphasis, how to stress words to create impact, when to pause and when to link lines. You will also learn subtle body movements to contribute to the effect of the poem.
Our writing programme is based on writing styles such as autobiographies, biographies, letters to friends, fairytales, descriptive writing and, science fiction. Students learn how to use these styles in their own writing.
Youngsters wander through our adventure stories and enhance their problem solving abilities as well as their vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar (tenses, adjectives, adverbs, present and past participles and phrasal verbs).
Become an archaeologist. Your child will discover new dinosaurs through fun experiments and adventurous activities.
Children make spontaneous, as well as well-prepared, presentations. They learn how to present key points effectively. Emphasis on body language, voice projection, facial expressions and posture are included in this fascinating programme.

Time Management & Tenses
Arrive on time! Brilliant for students who need to be aware of times and schedules so that they become responsible and punctual in their day-to-day lives. Through activities involving travel timetables, working backwards and complex schedules, students communicate in the correct tenses as they make plans, describe routines and become sufficiently organised to manage their lives efficiently.
Improve Your Grammar
Enjoy learning grammar by reading short texts that show how each structure is used. Oral and written exercises, pair work and concise reference sheets make sense of English grammar.
