A space to learn and support to grow...

At British Council, we create a learning space especially tailored for children, so that they will be motivated to learn more than ever before.  With the new learning approach, our Primary Plus students from level 3 to level 6 will be prepared before each class with a variety of online activities provided by expert teachers.   Engagement and the joy of learning will help your child to expand their ability to learn.  Parents can track your child’s progress in learning!

Your child will prepare for each class with independent study, set by their teacher to complete at their own pace, so class time is more focused on improving their English-speaking skills. This part of their experience:

  • helps your child improve their English reading, writing and listening skills with engaging, high-quality online learning resources designed by experts
