Early Year online classes

We want your child’s first experience with English to be a happy one.

We know that a child's early years are key in language acquisition and the foundations laid down at this life stage will be with them for the rest of their lives. The British Council and Academy Award®-winning Aardman animation studios bring you Learning Time with Timmy.

Learning Time with Timmy, a part of our Early Years programme is a fun and effective way, to learn English especially designed for children between the ages of 4 and 6 years. It combines our English teaching expertise with Aardman’s world-famous animated characters. Together, they offer your child a happy and memorable experience of learning English. 

Language learning is a continuous, dynamic, long term process, as with any skill development.  More opportunities to practice the language helps boost your child’s confidence in using the language in everyday life.

Here is what the parent of one of our students had to say about our Early Years Online course:

“My daughter uses better words with right pronunciation and attempts to speak longer sentences. She talks in detail about the stories that she knows, with better vocabulary.” Sunil, parent to Sahana
