What Differentiates Us

Teddy Bear is an English school specialized in children from 2 years old to advanced level adolescents.

The brain learns when it interacts with the environment around it. In this way, the student is connected to the English language from the moment they arrive at Teddy Bear. They are welcomed in English and encouraged to interact with cultural educators in an environment which is 100% English. At Teddy Bear the student experiences, with each day of class, a total immersion in the language.

Teachers are the primary agents of change in the educational process. All of our cultural educators hold degrees in tertiary education and are fluent in English. They’re also in a constant process of professional training in the field of English Language Teaching, while also being supported and monitored while engaging in weekly pedagogical development. Our professionals are chosen based on their technical training, and above all else, by their vocation to teach.

All of the school’s signage is in the English language and was specially planned and developed for English teaching. Each area is personalized to meet the needs of a particular age range, such as the Kids classroom or the Tweens and Teens classrooms and wash rooms. No detail is too small to escape our attention! Beyond that, there are a number of other environments where exclusive pedagogical programs take place, such as the garden, kitchen, patio, library, computer room and the interactive whiteboards.

More important than quantity is quality. For this reason, we work with a smaller number of students than your average classroom. This offers more interaction and individual attention to meet students’ needs in a unique and personalized way. Learning is influenced by emotions and results from a combination of memory and attention.

Since 1990 we have developed our own exclusive methodology in which innovation is a constant. As our methodology drives our teaching practice we have become a center for the independent development of didactic materials.

A good education starts by paying attention to the way in which we manage the knowledge each student brings to the classroom from early on. For us, the grade level and age bracket are just as important as the level of English each student possesses. At Teddy Bear, students who already have some knowledge of the English language are organized into groups with the same level of English and corresponding age. For us, to teach is to respect and encourage linguistic competence with in age ranges in order to build a challenging environment that stimulates the development of our students.

Educational Programmes® foster learning through students relating to and interacting with their individual contexts and build towards complete mastery of the English language, in accordance with the particular cognitive and emotional challenges and needs of each stage of development.

BEARFEST
Activities bring language to life.

It is when we all come together to bear witness to the success students have achieved and take pride in the results of all our hard work developing oral expression and interpretation.

"Comecei na Teddy Bear desde pequeno. As aulas sempre foram muito bem preparadas e os professores sempre foram de primeira linha. Quando me dei conta já estava com um domínio excelente do idioma, que hoje faz extrema diferença em minha profissão. O método de ensino dinâmico foi chave para aprender o idioma de forma extremamente natural. Não vejo melhor escola para crianças e adolescentes."

Entre Cooking Experiences and Backyard Games, há 20 anos, eu não fazia ideia do quanto aquelas terças e quintas-feiras abririam tantos caminhos na minha vida! Thank you Teddy Bear for being such an amazing school and for making a difference in my life! I will always bring with me the sweetest memories from those wonderful years!"
