Well priced weekly courses with a native professional teacher. 

Why should you sign up for the
THE ENGLISH AND CHESS HOUSE?

At TEACH Madrid we are committed to helping you reach your goals, if it is becoming a better chess player or improving your language skills. We have developed a programme to help our students of all ages achieve their goals. 

At The English And Chess House you will be taught by a Native Professional Teacher who has many years of experience working with students in schools and companies. We understand challenges that students face in their journeys so we take steps to prevent this. 

We have created small, affordable group classes as we find that students can grow together while enjoying specialised targeted classes. Our students can gain confidence in their classes if it is connecting with people on their journey to doing a business presentation. 

It has always been difficult for students to have access to top-level Chess tutoring. Chess coaches are both niche and expensive. Although chess is universal at TEACH Madrid we strive to find ways to make it truly inclusive for everyone. This programme has found a way for students to develop their their analytical skills along with their English language.

Students are taught by a native professional english teacher who has over ten years teaching experience. Classes are catered for the individual, challenging but fun so students really can get the most from the sessions. We suggest you book your classes in 4, 6 or 12 week slots in advance to lock in your lesson time. If the classes are full students will be added to a wait-list and if there is enough demand we may open up another time slot.

Health & Safety

The way that schools are delivering classes has changed during quarantine. We have a set of rules in place to make sure that students are kept safe in a well ventilated room. There are also online options for students who are not as comfortable being in groups. 

All students will wear face masks throughout the class, antibacterial gel will be provided and the areas used will be cleaned between groups. 

The tutor will be first-aid trained and have a International child protection certificate as the health, safety and peace of mind of our students is of the utmost importance to us.

Benefits

benefits of chess

Aside from the largely established academic benefits of learning English. Chess gives us increased analytical, critical, evaluative, cognitive skills and executive function. There are less well-known, but very effective, ways that chess is successfully used as a dynamic, strategic force multiplier.  

One of the greatest things about joining a chess and english programme is that it can be truly inclusively to all ages and there is no barrier to entry. Also, one can observe firsthand the positive progression of children with ADHD and/or on the spectrum who participate in chess regularly.

The ten benefits of chess:

Chess teaches you life skills

Chess is universal

Chess builds confidence

Chess develops problem-solving skills

Chess develops creativity

Chess is educational

Chess increases self-worth

Chess teaches good sportsmanship

Chess teaches planning and foresight

Chess raises IQ

Frequently Asked Questions

We have found that this is the most successful way for students to learn and grow if they have signed up for the course. 

It also ensures students are not behind and have learnt the material to reach the highest level of success. 

Yes and No.

For children having a personal touch can really be inspiring and learning in a group with friends in a club environment can foster a supportive fun community.

However each child is different. Some children like having the space to learn by themselves in a clear, structured online environment in a 1-1 video setting.

With our programme we strive to develop both of these elements as much as we can. Our mission is for children to learn in a fun way.

Students can then continue learning and improving their English and chess with the next program starting in January 2022.

As rules and regulations are consistently changing we follow guidelines set by Educa Madrid and the government sites. 

For example, there will be ventilation and hand sanitiser. The equipment will be cleaned regularly.

About the Course Creator

Over the last 20 years, Lateefah, a national chess champion and experienced coach has been involved in the wonderful, dangerous and bizarre game that is chess. During that time she came to thoroughly understand the challenges that most chess juniors, parents and schools face in their ability to access key information so they can grow. She noticed that although chess is universal it is not necessarily accessible for everyone. At Chess Sparks this is something we want to change. She has taught thousands of juniors over the past ten years and in that time has an advanced knowledge of why and how chess improves children’s learning.

Lateefah is recognised as one of the UK’s leading chess coaches for young people. Lateefah’s work in schools meant that she produced one of the strongest junior chess teams in the country. The school was recognised nationally by the English Chess Federation as a Leadership school for its role in the positive promotion of chess across the UK. It had also been awarded the British Chess Educational Trust Award, a national award, for the schools continued work in chess. On several occasions, under my leadership, the school won the National Primary Schools Award.
