Dear Friend,

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Teacher of Helen Doron Early English. Please read all the
enclosed information very carefully; all the details are important and also highlight the significant
advantages of choosing a career as a Helen Doron Early English Teacher.
Helen Doron Early English (HDEE) is a very special and unique learning method used to teach children
from ages 3 months -14 years. HDEE teaches in small groups of 4 - 8 children per group.
HDEE learning kits are composed of CDs, textbooks, storybooks, activity pads, and
HDEE is based on repetitive hearing and positive reinforcement.
HDEE is successful with children around the world, regardless of their mother tongue.
HDEE lessons are full of music, fun and games.
HDEE children learn the sound of the language by listening to the CDs at home. At
their weekly lessons they learn the meaning and application of the words.
HDEE is an international method with proven success for more than 25 years.
The Helen Doron Group's mission is to make a positive difference in the education of children and
youth worldwide. We help children achieve their highest potential through groundbreaking
methodologies, dedicated teachers, enjoyable programs and quality educational materials.
Encouraging childhood development through nurturing, creativity, excellence and innovation.
Applicants are required to have an excellent grasp of English and to speak it fluently.
They need to enjoy working with children.
Experience in working with children is helpful.
An academic background is an advantage.
The complete course lasts for seven days, from 8:00 to approximately 15:30 daily plus an extra half
day of marketing training on day 8 of the TTC. There is a short break mid-morning, with drinks and
refreshments provided, and a break for lunch. Participants are requested to bring their own lunch.
To ensure maximum personal attention and practical experience, all Teacher Training Courses are
limited to a maximum of 12 participants.
The course is in two stages: Stage A - two days and Stage B - five days.
Stage A - the first two days - gives you a chance to see that this is really what you want to do, and
gives us a chance to see that you are really suited to this work.

From the first day, the participant will be required to prepare and present parts of the lessons.
Preparation at home will be required and appropriate teaching aids, such as toys, dolls, hand puppets,
etc. must be located and brought to class as needed.
In order to qualify from Stage A, the teacher needs to give adequate presentations.

Those considered suitable to become Teachers of Helen Doron Early English will be able to continue to
Stage B. Only those who successfully meet our standard in practical demonstrations, written work,
essay and general attitude at the end of Stage B will qualify as Teachers of HDEE.
For the Stage A course fee you receive the first two days of the course and the teaching set English
For All Children (EFAC). The set contains 4 books, 5 CDs and a workbook.
For the Stage B course fee you receive:
1 Fun with Flupe teaching set of 4 books, 1 DVD and 4

8 Botty the Robot Teaches You English teaching set of
4 books and 5 CDs + extra activity book
9 Teacher Guide to Botty The Robot Teaches You
10 Botty DVD
11 Botty Teachers Phonetics CD
And, of course, a new career!
In Israel, it is our belief that, based on an estimated average income for an independent HDEE
teacher, one group of 4 children learning with you for 9 months covers the initial investment that
you pay for the course and materials! A teacher working in a HDEE Learning Centre would need
approximately 2 groups of 6 children learning for about 9 months to cover this initial investment.
And we would hope that you would have at least 10 times that amount of students! The return on
your investment is fast and easy.
To fully graduate, the candidate must satisfy the Teacher Trainer that she will be a good Teacher and
representative of Helen Doron Early English. Please note that during the course, about 2 hours of
preparation every evening will be needed to prepare for the personal presentation the next day. The
candidate will also be required to write a short essay of two or three pages explaining his/her
understanding of the Method. The essay is to be handed in on Day 6 of the course and will be
reviewed on Day 7. An adequate essay is an essential requirement for graduation.

Each Teacher is required to sign a Teacher's Agreement. The Agreement protects the rights of both
parties. If you would like to see it before registering, please contact our Office.
