What is Learning Time with Shaun and Timmy?

Learning Time with Shaun and Timmy is British Council’s English course for pre-school children (4-5 years old). It is a multi-award winning product in collaboration with Aardman Animations, an Oscar-winning British animation company. It consists of a fun and engaging classroom environment and includes all printed materials, digital apps, and a free on-line course for parents to understand more about their children’s learning potential and how they can support their child.
