Raising English (RE) is a unique language institute located in Utrecht. We specialise in providing English enrichment lessons to young learners by means of a creative curriculum enhanced with stimulating stories and lively songs.
Raising English started in 2013 with English as Second Language (ESL) program with 1 school in Utrecht and just with 3 children. Within a short time span our student base grew to 20 times our initial start.
Today we have collaborations with several schools and day care centers. We are also preparing to launch a pre-school in Utrecht soon.
