English courses for Primary School children

Registering for a course at the British Council is easy.

Step 1 – Book a free consultation  

  • Choose a suitable location, time, and date. You can choose between an online consultation or a face-to-face consultation in one of our centres, whichever is more convenient for you. Please note that you can book the consultation in any of our centres, not necessarily the one where the course will take place. Customers interested in courses in Rome should book the online option
  • In most cases, your child will need to attend the consultation so that we can meet them and find out more about their language learning experience so far. This will help us to select the best course for your child. 

Step 2 – Consultation and short level test with a teacher

  • If you have chosen the face-to-face consultation, please come to the centre at the time slot you have chosen. If you have selected the online test, please access the zoom link which you received in the confirmation message.
  • Children who are at nursery school or in years 1, 2, 3 at Primary school in September 2024 don't need to take a test.
  • Children who'll be in years 4 or 5 at Primary school just take an oral  test.
  • Children who'll be in Secondary school will take an oral and written test. 
  •  The teacher will advise you on the options available for your child. 

Step 3 – Register for your course 

  • You can register for the course immediately after the consultation or, if you prefer, online using our secure portal or over the phone.
  • You must be 18 years old to be able to pay and register for a course.
