Learning through stories, notebooks and projects

Brilliant introduces children to English through a carefully graded language syllabus and has been planned so that all children will have time to read, write, listen and speak at their own pace.
Absorbing and colourful, this story-based course follows the adventures of Alice, Denzil, Bertie, Nora and Brill and presents language through stimulating practical exercises. The four-level course consists of approximately three teaching hours a week. Brilliant can also be combined with Brilliant Fun to create a six-level course.
