👨🏫First of all, the lessons in our school are always tailor-made according to the needs of the students. This means that no testing or generalization is made before you and your students meet.
You first meet your student at the trial lesson and so you can see the level of his/her knowledge and recommend the duration and frequency of the lessons, as well as the level of the coursebook to use.
📚We offer a syllabus based on Cambridge course book Kid’s Box
Kid’s Box has 6 levels. Each 2 levels correspond to Cambridge YLE exams: Starters, Movers and Flyers. So, if out student studies with Kid’s Box, he can take an exam at Cambridge center and confirm the level of knowledge that he got at our school.
Kid’s Box also has a level for preschool children (3-5 y.o.) called Kid’s Box Starter.
For AllRight.io we changed the names of these courses using our brand character: «Charlie Preschool», «Charlie Starter», «Charlie Mover» and «Charlie Flyer».

What if Kid’s Box is not good for my student?
Using Kid’s Box is not strictly obligatory – you can add your own materials to the lessons, yet, your lessons should be systematic and leading to some formal result.
If you prefer using some other course book (which you think is more suitable for your student) you may still orient yourself to the syllabus we offered.
For example, I like Longman course book “Fly High”. I choose Fly High level 2. I look at the syllabus and find a matching Kid’s Box level – I see that this is Kid’s Box level 2. So I understand that my student should reach the result of Kid’s Box 2 syllabus in +/- 30 lessons, even using Fly High instead of Kid’s Box.
Still we understand that there are students with their specific needs. Some of them don’t need systematic studying and just need speaking practice. Others come to AllRight.io with specific request to work on their grammar or get prepared for some exams. In these cases they are not going to study according to the syllabus – you will develop the syllabus and the lessons for these students yourself.
