Students learn English in an entertaining environment and enjoy learning a new language.
Special English Class
Along with Turkish classes where two-hour English Language education is provided every day, AREL Preschool also provides special English classes where education is in English and the native speaker preschool teachers are homeroom teachers.

In music, drama, ballet, dance, arts, chess and physical education classes, concepts are simultaneously taught to students both in Turkish and in English so that they acquire the concepts bilingually.
