British Council Learn English
The British Council Learn English Kids has some ideas for short activities that your children can do by themselves and/or with limited guidance. Don't worry if you don't speak English – you can give your child the instructions in your own language, and at the end of the activity they can also tell you about it in your own language. The most important thing is that while they are doing the activity, they are using English.
Learn English for children who can read/write in their first language.
Listen to stories in English and in other languages.
Oxford University Press
Oxford University Press has a selection of resources including language games and stories to listen to and different levels.
Please check the resources you choose use UK English and not American English.
