Your child will learn naturally through play and Timmy's stories

Introducing English to your child between the ages of six and seven allows them to learn the language when it comes to them most naturally. 

The British Council's early years specialists have designed Learning Time with Timmy to be fun and engaging for your child. Our approach to learning nurtures your child's creativity, critical thinking and social skills as they learn English.

It boosts their self-confidence and helps them develop communication skills and good pronunciation. Find out more about how we teach.

We have partnered with Aardman animation studios because the stories of their world-famous character Timmy, star of Timmy Time, enable your child to learn new words in context. Timmy and his friends will capture your child’s imagination. This connection deepens their engagement in the learning process. A more memorable and motivating experience for your child, a stronger foundation in English.

Improve your child's learning with our world of English expertise.
