Teaching kids

The British Council in Ukraine is happy to announce the start of registration for the Young Learner Intensive Summer School for students aged 6 to 17 years old.

We will be delivering these Summer Intensives in our new premises in the centre of Kyiv.

The British Council Summer School is a modular General English programme which offers up to 200 hours of learning over the summer. Choose any of the component modules based on your summer plans and have your child study intensively from 10.00 to 14.30 on weekdays throughout the summer. The focus is on the balanced, natural and enjoyable development of all skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing), language (grammar and vocabulary), as well as such 21st century skills as creativity, collaboration and digital literacy. It is offered at all CEFR levels from Beginner to Upper Intermediate and for all life stages from Lower Primary to Upper Secondary, reflecting how children learn at each stage of development. For Upper Secondary students, we also offer IELTS preparation modules.

What courses can you choose?

The choice of the course depends only on the age of your child, on your summer plans, and whether you are interested in exam preparation. The modules within each type of school are flexible and can be combined in any order.

Lower Primary (6-7 y.o.)

The British Council Lower Primary Summer School is designed for children who still need support to be able to read and write confidently, and focuses on developing speaking and listening skills. The course gives learners a confident start to learning English and enhances the learners’ thinking skills, improving their memory along with their English. Learners are physically active during lessons and develop their English through songs, rhymes, games and many more fun activities.

Upper Primary (8-10 y.o.)

The British Council Upper Primary Summer School develops young children’s confidence in communicating in English and equips them with essential life skills to meet future challenges. Children will gain confidence in all four skills – listening, speaking, reading and writing. They will develop their communicative confidence and learn English naturally through a variety of engaging tasks and projects. This dynamic and involving course develops the whole child and supports them in reaching their full potential. Motivating craft activities and project work give them tangible evidence of their accomplishments and focus on conversational practice provides learners with the tools they need to use English in and outside of school.

Lower Secondary (11-13 y.o.)

The British Council Lower Secondary Summer School gives younger teenage learners a truly rewarding learning experience, improves their understanding of the language and develops skills at interacting in English. Our lesson approach promotes communication and develops critical 21st Century Skills, providing real contexts to practice everyday language and share ideas about the teens’ goals, dreams and global issues.

Upper Secondary (14-17 y.o.)

The British Council Upper Secondary English Summer School develops teenage learners’ all-round English ability. The course programme presents learners with a variety of options for language practice and allows them to become active participants in the learning process. It goes beyond building strong language skills to developing the whole learner with an emphasis on critical thinking, positive values, and healthy self-esteem.

IELTS Intensive (14-17 y.o.)

A special 20-hour course to prepare young learners for the internationally recognised IELTS exam, a very useful qualification for students wishing to study abroad. It focuses on the techniques and strategies needed to develop exam skills, but the learners will be able to use these skills in numerous other academic situations.
