About this course

This summer, develop your child's critical thinking and problem-solving skills through our theme-based Summer School course and make them future-ready! 

Theme: Creative Minds. Forward Thinkers.

The theme focuses on developing 21st century skills in your child through English language training.

The 21st-century skills are life skills such as creativity, leadership, critical thinking and problem solving. There are specially formulated activities and engagement with a variety of media to help children gain these life skills naturally. These skills will equip your child to solve problems, make decisions, think critically, communicate ideas effectively and work well within teams and groups. Our Young Learner teaching methodology is task-based focusing on real-life activities, and classes are delivered in a fun and interactive way. The course will include special features like Digital learning, Public speaking, Creative writing and learning through films with other children in their class.

 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.

Registrations Open. Enrol your child now!
Courses start in New Delhi on 20 May, in Chennai on 22 April and in Kolkata on 20 May

 Every child on the course will get an opportunity to participate in the Global Young Learners’ Art Competition organised worldwide.

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. We also give you regular feedback on your child’s activities and progress during the course.

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.
