Summer School at the British Council is a unique two-week online course where your child will improve their language, communication and critical thinking skills to prepare them for a global world. This is an exciting opportunity to learn about and celebrate the diversity of Indian cultural heritage from around the country and use this knowledge to create and design their own products. In doing so children of all ages will make measurable progress, learning to express themselves with confidence in English. 

Our friendly teachers are trained to create a positive environment in the class and help children express their opinions freely. In every lesson, there is a focus on a skills-based task, where children will have the opportunity to produce and practice the target language structures and receive feedback and evaluation from the teacher on how to develop in these areas. Speaking skills and building vocabulary are developed through engaging activities and games.
