English courses for Primary School children

Registering for a course at the British Council is easy.

Step 1 – Book a free consultation  

  • Choose a consultation online, or face to face in one of our centres.
  • Your child will need to attend the consultation so we can assess their English ability and find the most suitable course for them. 
  • If your child is under 7 years old they do not need to take a test or level check, however we strongly encourage you to book a consultation with us so we get to meet you both and have a better understanding of your child’s needs.

Step 2 – Join your consultation and take a short level test 

  • If you select Rome, Milan or Naples, your child’s test will be face-to face at our premises. If you choose phone/online you will receive a unique link to Zoom for a virtual meeting in which your child will do the test. Please access Zoom and wait for the meeting to begin. We will not call you on your phone.  
  • The choice between 'face-to-face' and 'phone/online' only refers to the way the test is delivered, not to the course type that you are interested in. 
  • During the consultation, one of our teachers will talk to your child and do a short level test to get a better idea of their English skills.  They will talk to you about the results of the test and will discuss the most suitable course to support your child’s learning. 
  • The teacher will look at possible options for your child’s course, including locations, days, and times as well as answering any concerns you may have.

Step 3 – Register for your course 

After your consultation, you can register and pay for your chosen course. You can find more information here: English courses for kids and teens

You must be 18 years old to be able to pay and register for a course.
