The right level for your child
We offer courses for every age group and ability level with classes organized as follows:
- Lower Primary (ages 6-7)
- Upper Primary (ages 8-10)
- Lower Secondary 1 (ages 11-12)
Students aged 6 and up are also assigned levels within their age group.
If your child is a new British Council learner they’ll need to take a placement test to find out which is the right course level for them. These tests take place in our teaching centres in Agouza, Heliopolis, Nile University, Alexandria and City Stars. And you can book your placement test online on here.
Please bring your child’s birth certificate with you.
How will my child be assessed?
At the end of the course, your child will receive a report card containing grades for speaking, listening, reading and writing, as well as for participation, behaviour and effort.
If your child passes, they’ll receive a certificate and progress to the next level. If they don’t, their teacher may suggest they repeat the course to ensure they’re learning with children of the same ability.
