• Make a timeline of your child's day. Take photos or ask them to draw pictures to illustrate getting up, having breakfast etc. Stick the pictures onto a long piece of paper in the appropriate order (for older children you could add clocks). Use the timeline to talk about daily activities in English.
  • We have lots of flashcards on a wide range of topics. Print these out to use at home or in the classroom. Play memory and matching games to make learning vocabulary fun.

    You can also create your own flashcards by using the flashcard maker tool on our TeachingEnglish website.

  • Welcome to Parents

    LearnEnglish Kids is the British Council's website for children who are learning English as a second or foreign language.

    This site has free resources for children to use at home, either independently or with family members or friends. The resources have been created and developed by teachers and professionals who work with children who are learning English. They have been designed to help children learn English while having fun, or while learning about something else.

    It is a good idea to look at the materials on LearnEnglish Kids first to see which ones are best for your child. You can use our search tool under learning resources to quickly find exactly what you're looking for.
