If you love working with kids and see them activate their creativity and enthusiasm, all the while helping them develop their skills and confidence in English, then this is the place for you!

KKCL also welcomes adults at our summer school, and our adult General English classes are topic-based and communicative, in order to equip students with the tools they need to take their English one step further.
