About English for Schools

  • About Me

    I'm Clare Cole and my ethos is 'making English fun for everyone' - that's why I founded English for Schools. I always aim to increase the confidence of the learner and improve language skills through games and fun activities.

  • Why English for Schools?

    I noticed that some of the teachers at my children's school were afraid to teach English because they didn't have the confidence to speak it themselves. So, I decided to help teachers to gain more confidence by providing them with the necessary tools to teach English in a fun way, using games, songs and activities.

  • English Training

    Having trained hundreds of teachers, through the Hogeschool Utrecht, the EarlyBird and English for Schools, to get the most out of their English lessons. I've gained valuable insights into the most effective ways to teach English to primary school children.

  • Writing, Editing and Proof Reading

    My other work includes writing and editing for the publishers Blink and Noordhoff. I have worked on both primary and secondary school ESL courses including, GrooveMe, Wired and Stepping Stones.
