Give your child a head start – with our inspiring English classes for kids

Primary Plus, our English course for kids, will encourage your child aged six to nine years to express themselves in a safe, motivating environment. 

We create a rich English language environment. Children feel at the centre of their own learning. They grow in confidence as they develop their fluency in English.

Inspiring. Engaging. Motivating.

Your child will: 

  • build confidence by speaking in English about familiar topics such as their surroundings, from their bedroom to their neighbourhood
  • express themselves through exciting activities and group projects – exploring subjects like the natural world, from under the sea to outer space
  • develop important life skills, which prepare them for their future beyond the classroom.





Aged 6 to 7 your child will:

  • begin to read and write in English, first at word level, then at sentence level
  • build phrases, using new vocabulary 
  • understand and present their ideas in English on familiar topics.

They will do this by: 

  • finding out how everyone is unique in their likes, dislikes and interests

  • recognising how daily lives can be similar or different 

  • describing their own surroundings, from their bedroom to their neighbourhood

  • being aware how they express their feelings and make life choices

  • thinking about the natural world and how they belong in it.

 

Aged 8 to 9 your child will:

  • learn and practise new vocabulary and phrases on familiar topics, in activities such as writing creatively

  • read independently and form an interest in a variety of topics.

They will do this by: 

  • developing their imagination through storytelling 

  • learning from their curiosity about the natural world, from the sea to outer space   
  • thinking about and sharing ideas on how to keep happy and healthy

  • exploring ways to be a good citizen 

  • reflecting on their life, interests and hopes for the future.


Learn English and so much more

Young students on our English courses learn by getting involved in activities that interest them. Our expert teachers help them develop their English skills – and also creativity, critical thinking, problem solving and leadership skills. 

Set your child on the path to success

We see parents as partners. You will receive regular feedback on your child’s progress. At each age, we will assess their development in English language and core life skills. 

You will also get a log in to the Primary Plus online portal, so that your child can continue learning at home.

TESTIMONIALS FROM PARENTS OF OUR LEARNERS

“This course is an added value for them, not just for the English but also for all their skills.”

“One of the good things about the British Council is that, unlike other language courses, a person is immersed in British culture”

“When he comes out of class, he feels so enthusiastic and at ease.“
