Our Primary Plus course is based on interactive classes which have been developed to spark a love of English. Classes combine digital tools with colourful magazines and use animation and characters (such as ‘Shaun the Sheep’, developed through our exclusive partnership with Aardman Animations).

Your child will develop confidence in listening, speaking, reading and writing through interactive activities and creative tasks. We set them exciting projects, encouraging them to work in groups to create innovative solutions together. Our global teams have worked very hard to ensure that our lessons online are age-appropriate and effective.

Online classes are structured around four components:

  1. Self-study
  2. Project
  3. Live class
  4. Reflection

To further enhance the online learning experience for our Young Learners, our online classes are limited to a small group of up to 10 students.

This gives us the opportunity to spend more time with each student and maximise teacher and student interaction.
