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

Primary Plus, our English course for kids, will encourage your child aged 7 to 10 years to express themselves in a safe, motivating environment. This is the right age for language learning to be effortless and impactful.

We create a space where only English is spoken. Children feel at the centre of their own learning. They grow in confidence as they develop their fluency in English and critical 21st century skills to help them at school as well.

With this course your child will:

  • Build confidence by speaking in English about familiar topics such as their surroundings, from their room 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, such as problem solving, reflecting on their behaviour, giving opinions etc., which prepare them for their future beyond the classroom.

Aged 7-8 years your child will:

  • grow in confidence at reading and writing
  • build accurate sentences, using new vocabulary
  • understand and present their ideas in English on familiar topics.

They will do this by: 

  • discovering how to respect and value their own and others’ feelings
  • being aware of the language of marketing and promotion
  • learning to give their opinions, make suggestions, compare the past and present, etc.
  • knowing what to do in times of emergencies (problem solving)
  • doing some research on topics of interest – underwater world, eating out, etc.
  • thinking about appropriate behaviour in different situations.

Aged 9-10 years, your child will:

  • learn and practise new vocabulary and complex language on familiar topics, in activities such as writing creatively
  • read independently and form an interest in a variety of topics.
  • use reading and writing as a tool for further learning.

They will do this by:

  • developing their imagination through storytelling and story writing
  • learning from their curiosity about the world that they live in from their physical surroundings to the media world
  • thinking critically about and sharing ideas on how to keep happy and healthy
  • exploring issues affecting society and the environment and finding solutions
  • reflecting on their life, interests and hopes for the future.

Young students on our English courses learn by getting involved in activities that interest them and relevant to their life.

Our expert teachers help them develop their English skills – and also creativity, critical thinking, problem solving and leadership skills. These skills will not only help them in life, but also at school where they will be better able to understand and communicate.

Set your child on the path to success

We see parents as partners and have created a Parent Engagement Plan to complement your child’s course. 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 against age-appropriate child developmental milestones.

The Parent Engagement Plan includes:

  • Meet the teacher – before class
  • Workshops for parents (how to help your child at home) – during course
  • Experience the classroom – once during a term
  • Weekly progress updates – on a digital platform called Edmodo.
  • Parent-Teacher meeting (where children showcase what they’ve learnt) – every 6 to 8 weeks.

The benefits include:

  • Personalised progress updates via Edmodo
  • Tips and strategies to continue your child’s learning outside the British Council through parent workshops
  • First-hand experience of your child’s class
  • Periodic display of your child’s work when you come for the Parent-Teacher meeting
  • A chance to meet other parents

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