Learn English, and so much more.
Primary Plus is an exclusive, global English course, designed by experts for primary school kids aged 6-12. It is based on the principle of effective teaching in a positive environment where every child feels welcome and secure. We believe these combined aspects elevate English from a short-term outcome to a lifelong skill to enable your child by equipping them for future challenges.
In Primary Plus children will tackle real-life tasks, working in groups and crafting researched answers and developing innovative solutions. The tasks are specially designed to match their developmental level, ensuring familiarity to the situation they learn in. Children will communicate and engage with a variety of media, leading them to work collaboratively as well as to become more self-directed.
Based on extensive feedback and long-term development, Primary Plus gives priority to:
- A 4-skills approach leading to communication in English (with a focus on developing literacy skills in our Starter classes)
- Ongoing development of vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation
- Building confidence and developing positive attitudes
- Knowing other cultures to better know one’s own
- A focus on the whole child: moving beyond language learning through the active promotion of Creativity, Critical Thinking, Digital Literacy and ‘Learning how to learn’
- The integration of IT and ICT skills into mainstream learning
- Using a range of modern, communicative teaching methods including task-based learning (TBL), communicative language teaching (CLT) and content and language integrated learning (CLIL)

Safety measure for our onsite English courses
Safety and Supervision
We regard all students below the age of 18 as children, according to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child 1989. We take our responsibilities towards the children in our care very seriously and we endeavour to make the British Council as safe as possible.
Since our Teaching Centre is located in a public building, parents or guardians should stay with their child until either the class teacher or designated teaching assistant arrives in the classroom.
As we are unable to supervise any children outside class time, we ask parents to ensure that students are dropped off and collected on time before and after classes.
British Council regulations mean that no primary plus student can leave the building unaccompanied after class. Children must be collected by a parent or nominated guardian. We cannot make any exceptions to this rule.
