Chatter-box is an English learning centre established in March 2000, catering for children between the ages of 3 to 12 years.
Our 1st teaching centre was established in March 2000 in Tai Po by an Educationalist from the UK.
To cope with our expanding student intakes and the number of new courses, we extend our services to Fanling in Sept 2005 to make easy access to our students in the northern part of NT area.
Although we believe it is important for children to be exposed to different English accents, we place emphasis on British English and our course content is designed with the British National Curriculum in mind. (these are curriculum targets set by the UK government for schools in England and Scotland ).
The school is now run by a group of young and dynamic educators who strive to develop a holistic learning environment for children.
