About this course

Summer is here!

Let your child explore the world and discover the magic of media with British Council’s Summer School 2018 short courses. These theme-based courses are conducted once a year at the British Council Teaching Centres in New Delhi, Chennai and Kolkata.

This summer, we are back with two exciting themes for the courses, Explorers and Media Magic.  Here’s what children will learn through the themes: 

Explorers: Through a virtual trip around the world, children will learn about different cultures, develop language skills and build confidence through a lesson about one country each day. 

Media Magic: Children will explore communication channels such as the radio, television and the internet. They learn how to write blogs, create an advertisement and even explore ways of using the internet (wisely of course!). 

All this and more, as they develop specific skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking) and aspects of language (vocabulary and pronunciation) in a fun, secure and learner centric environment. 

Course duration: 30 hours

Why take this course

Our summer courses for kids are designed around fun stories, games and creative activities that will inspire your child, improve their language and build their confidence. 

Above all, they will give them the chance to use the English that they’ve been studying so hard to learn.

Kids learning with the world's English experts will:

  • get a qualified and experienced teacher
  • use English in class and on our exciting activity based programme
  • learn by listening to songs, reading stories, playing games and working on class projects
  • improve their language and build their confidence
  • have a great time learning English.

Our summer curriculum engages learners with a teaching approach suitable to their age and development. We have designed a theme-based syllabus to develop natural communication and promote literacy skills. Learners are encouraged to take an active role in their learning, using English in a meaningful way to take part in fun class activities and projects. Typical activities include: inventing, experimenting and presenting new ideas, arts and crafts, drama, games, and storytelling.

The British Council is dedicated to excellence in teaching and creating a safe and secure learning environment. We treat every child as an individual and value their potential and contribution. We believe that sharing cultures, languages and knowledge is key to becoming successful and compassionate global citizens. We encourage curiosity, creativity and independence by providing outstanding learning experiences.

“The British Council believes that all children have potential and that every child matters - everywhere in the world. The British Council affirms the position that all children have the right to be protected from all forms of abuse as set out in article 19, UNCRC, 1989”
