Being confident in English can give your child an early advantage at school, helping them make the most of the education, qualifications and career opportunities that lie ahead. 

Our courses have been specifically designed around the unique way children learn and are taught by experienced teachers who are passionate about the English language and experts in teaching children.

We encourage talk, play and mutual interaction in a natural and enjoyable way, in a safe and secure environment, to help your child get the best possible start in life.

Teaching English. Supporting learning. Testing proficiency.

Building on the success of our Adult English programmes, the British Council Ethiopia is pleased to announce our new offer for young leaners, Primary Plus.

We are bringing our global expertise and quality in young learner training to Ethiopia with Primary Plus, a holistic course which pairs an understanding of child development with English language skills.

Improve your child’s learning with our world of English expertise

The British Council has been teaching English for over 75 years and is trusted by parents all over the world. With our expertise in English teaching and education we are proud to launch our own British Council courses.

Primary Plus – our new English course for children aged 6 to 11 years – is delivered in our safe, nurturing and inspiring English environment so the experience is meaningful and memorable.

Primary Plus classes are interactive, fun and challenging, with teachers who will motivate your child to gain confidence in understanding and using English. Thanks to our partnership with Aardman Animations, we bring the lessons to life with Shaun the Sheep and friends.  With Primary Plus your child will build confidence in listening, speaking, reading and writing English through activities such as stories, songs, rhymes, games, craft, movement and drama.
