Testimonial from an Israeli grandmother

Information

My family lives in Israel, 2 years ago, I brought my grand daughter to First Focus during the prior summer, she was 6 years old and did not speak one word of English.

By the end of the summer, after spendng 5 weeks in the First Focus Summer Camps, my granddaughter had a solid foundation in reading, writing and speaking at the first grade level.
Yes, my granddaughter returned to Israel after the summer camps ended and she became the leader in her English class. This gave her confidence in continuing to learn English in the Israeli school.
We made use of the First Focus tutoring program as my granddaughter spoke no English when arrived in the US. The tutoring was for two weeks to cover the basis reading and pronunciation skills that was very helpful for gettng traction in the class.
