Spiral Language System

Yellow House English has its own proprietary methodology, the Spiral Language System™ created by Yellow House founder, Claire Selby. It is the first method that successfully integrates all the key elements of teaching English to children. That’s why Claire Selby’s Spiral Language System is so important.

Claire’s method combines the channels and techniques that are most effective in helping young children learn a new language naturally.

All materials written by Claire Selby follow these guiding rules on structure, planning, integration, revision, activation and memorisation of language. The activities in her courses and series build language paths to long term memory so that children remember what they have learnt – not just this week – but as a foundation in English for life.
