We are delighted to introduce you to Lingua Connect; our brand new offering for pupils whose first language is not English, and who need some additional support to improve their proficiency.
We have tailored our online courses to be flexible and efficient, with a timetable aimed at fitting your schedule and day-to-day life.
The Lingua Connect method fosters a supportive, collaborative and interactive environment for all. Not only creating a safe and fun place to learn, but providing the tools to become a global citizen.

Lingua Connect is a flexible, interactive and collaborative language learning platform, for children aged 7 to 14 years and is comprised of:
- 2 x 45 minute classes per week
- Small classes of up to 10 pupils
- Courses at a variety of CEFR levels
- Classes following the internationally recognised Cambridge Curriculum
- Fully online flexible classes to fit around the school day
- Course content that focusses on vocabulary used in English National Curriculum core subjects from KS2 to KS4
- A dedicated community space for additional resources, activities and celebration of success amongst Lingua Connect pupils
Please note: Pupils will be required to use their camera and audio during the Lingua Connect Zoom lessons as learners rely on interactions with other pupils to make the most of the course.
What Language Courses Does Lingua Connect Offer?
Lingua Connect follows the internationally recognised Common European Framework of Reference for Languages – also known as CEFR.
From September 2022, Lingua Connect will be offering a range of courses covering levels A1 – B2, which are now open for enrolment.
My Online Schooling families can now enrol for Lingua Connect Term Time Courses and Holiday Club via the form on the MOS Parent App.
What Level Of English Language Is My Child Currently At?
Determine your child’s English Language level by checking the descriptions of the different CEFR levels in your own language here.
Pupils can also take a short test here to get an indication of their English language level.
We would strongly recommend that any pupils between A1 and B2 level take Lingua Connect classes to supplement their My Online Schooling classes.
English as additional language Examinations Cambridge English Curriculum
All learners enrolling in any three term course have the choice to either simply use the course as a means of improving their English proficiency, or at the end of the course, sit examinations to achieve a qualification.
Lingua Connect courses follow the internationally recognised Cambridge English Curriculum. On completion of all three terms of the full course, learners will be prepared to sit the Cambridge Examinations; all you need to do is enrol at your local exam centre.
