Your child will learn naturally through play and Timmy's stories

Introducing English to your child at four years old allows them to learn the language when it comes to them most naturally.  When this learning happens alongside other children in the class, it develops important life skills too. The British Council's early years specialists have designed Learning Time with Timmy to be fun and engaging for your child. Our approach to learning nurtures your child's creativity, critical thinking and social skills as they learn English. It boosts their self-confidence and helps them develop communication skills and good pronunciation. 

We have partnered with Aardman animation studios because of their world-famous character Timmy is relatable, lovable and funny. Learning Time with Timmy, gives your child a memorable and motivating experience, and a strong foundation in English.

Improve your child's learning with our world of English expertise.
