What is KOM
KOM stands for Kids on Mission. It is Charleston Bilingual Academy’s virtual tutoring program, specializing in Christ-centered language learning. KOM classes are interactive. Our teachers are trained to get children talking in the target language using songs, games, interesting visuals, and student-centered teaching techniques. More importantly, all of our teachers love the Lord and clearly infuse this love into each class, with each student.
What can I expect from KOM?
You can expect your child to be speaking the target language during each class through interactions with the teacher. At KOM, we believe that children learn language best when using new vocabulary words in sentences while using movement to engage neural connections.
Each class should be fun for the student. That’s why our teachers enforce retention of vocabulary and sentence structure through interactive games, colorful visuals, funny faces, and a loving, encouraging atmosphere.
Students are also given homework, craft ideas, and other materials to encourage learning at home between classes. Unlike other online classroom platforms, KOM staff and teachers are also committed to communicating with our student’s families to support their learning adventure outside of class.
How many students are in each class?
At KOM, we offer one-on-one classes as well as small classes with no more than 3-4 students. We want to be sure that each student has opportunities to speak in the target language throughout the class.
