Welcome to our world of English … a place where confidence grows.

Our courses are designed by English language learning experts. We have over 80 years’ experience of teaching English. Classes are taught by highly trained and experienced teachers who bring energy and expertise to every class.

Spark their imagination

With us, your child will learn more than just the English language. They'll be able to express themselves with confidence that goes beyond their language skills.

Your child will get the most out of their English learning experience with a combination of:

  • lively classes with a specialist teacher, who will encourage their curiosity and keep them motivated to practise speaking English and enjoy learning with classmates of a similar age
  • interactive independent study, set by your child's teacher to prepare them for the lesson – all in a safe, easy-to-use online learning environment.

You will also have access to your child’s personal dashboard. Together you can track their progress, celebrate their successes and see where they are on their learning journey.

Shape their future with skills for a global world

Our classes focus on practical skills and interactive exercises. Each module is brought to life with activities, team projects and high-quality materials based on real-world topics that children and teens are really interested in.

Your child will improve their creativity, leadership and collaboration skills that open up a world of possibilities.

A rewarding learning experience that helps them go further

At home your child will improve their language skills with engaging, high-quality online learning resources that keep them motivated.

Your child will have the space to improve their English reading, writing and listening skills in their own time, as they prepare  or their next class.

The result? They will feel more confident in class and have more time to work on their speaking skills during the class time with their teacher and classmates.  A love of learning English will last a lifetime.

Primary Plus and Secondary Plus are available in British Council teaching centres and our partner schools in many major cities around the world.
