English class for children

Registering for a course at the British Council is easy.

STEP 1 - Book a free consultation online

  • Your child needs a placement test to register them onto the correct class for their English level.

Does my child need to do a placement test?

STEP 2 - Complete the level test at one of our centres

  • You will receive information about the courses when you take the test. 
  • Together, the written test and interview take about 30 minutes. The test will take place at our English language centre.

STEP 3 - Register for a course

  • The results of the test will help us to determine the best course from our range of English courses for kids and teens.
  • After the test, parents and guardians over the age of 18 can register and pay for a course.

Does my child need to do a placement test?

Your child needs a placement test in order to register them into the correct class for their level for school year courses and for bilingual intensive courses.

However you can directly register at your closest centre if:

  • they have done a placement test within the past six months
  • they have passed the FCE, CAE or CPE exam within the past six months
  • your child is attending one of our intensive holiday courses.
