It is hard to imagine a world without English. To excel in the 21st Century English is a prerequisite. It is therefore essential that our children become confident and proficient users of the language.
For that to happen, language acquisition should start at an early age and should be taught engagingly and creatively. Emphasis must also be given to the development of all the four skills; listening, speaking, reading and writing. This ensures that they develop the ability to use the language academically as well as in the real world in an effective way.
EYLP is specially designed for schools that would like to raise the English proficiency levels. The complete programme is designed around the learning outcomes at different CEFR*(Common European Framework for Reference) levels. This helps the school to internationally benchmarking the English proficiency levels of their students.
As part of the onboarding process an 'English Level Placement test' (ELPT) designed around CEFR levels* is conducted for groups of 5 students per class (schools may choose to conduct the ELPT for the complete school at special prices not included in the programme). The students may be randomly chosen by the school. This helps us accurately measure the students' current level of English language skills and deliver content that is level and age-appropriate.
The major focus of the "English for Young Learners programme" would be to improve students' speaking skills with a relevant focus on reading, writing and listening skills. To make learning fun and natural, we employ the communicative method of teaching. It also ensures that students are more receptive and motivated.
The content has been designed in a manner that complements the school curriculum. As English is the medium of instruction for all subjects, it will have a positive impact on the students' overall academic performance.
The EYLP is available at three CEFR levels:
- A1 (CEFR) Elementary
- A2 (CEFR) Foundation
- B1 (CEFR) Pre-Intermediate
Note: EYLP is also available at B2, C1 and C2 level upon request.
Learning outcomes at each level (CEFR levels explained):

Activity led sessions:
Most of our sessions are in the form of activities i.e. the teaching will not be restricted to just lecture but also involve roleplays, listening exercises, vocabulary building activities, group and pair work activities.
Our philosophy is that a classroom is a place for learning not just teaching. The flipped teaching methodology ensures that the students are acquainted with the content before they enter the classroom. This also shifts the ownership of learning from the teachers to the students and helps us make the classes interactive and dynamic.
The course material reflects the latest trends in English language and is regularly updated. We also ensure that the content is age-appropriate, exciting and thought-provoking.
I am a professor of anthropology in Brazil. I did a 2 month Hindi Course at Rose Mount. Initially, it was a bit difficult but after the first week I settled in the class and made good progress. I believe that 2 month was a short time, I should have opted for a longer course.

Hi, I am Navila from Japan. I first came for one month and then I came again for 6 months. My Hindi teacher was very good. He made feel comfortable in the class. I studied and I enjoyed a lot. I went to Ladhak at the end of my course.
I came to the school to prepare for IELTS (University of Cambridge Exam) with my friend. We stayed together in the same room.After scoring 6.5 band I am now teaching English in Thailand. The principal himself used to take our classes. We spent around 6 hrs average in the class.
My stay at Rose Mount was a great experience. In fact, it was my first visit to India. But thanks to Mr. Madhukar I felt quite at ease. I am coming back in February again to carry on my studies with our Hindi teacher.
