The Description

Timmy and friends Kid and Finlay from the TV show Timmy Time help your child build their vocabulary in English, start to read and boost memory skills in Timmy’s Starting to Read!

Safe, ad-free, English language learning fun for children aged six and younger, designed by the British Council, world experts in teaching English trusted by parents worldwide, in partnership with Aardman Animations.

Ideal for children aged six and younger who are learning English as an additional language and for children aged three and under if their first language is English.


PLAY three interactive games to learn new words, build confidence in reading and boost essential skills.
DISCOVER up to 60 words and phrases in English, including holiday-themed vocabulary such as party food, musical instruments and fancy-dress costumes.
EARN stickers and videos – fun rewards motivate your child to keep learning!
LISTEN to the narrator and practise saying the words aloud.


Timmy’s Starting to Read includes three bite-size and age-appropriate games that are designed by British Council English teaching experts to provide hours of high-quality learning content for your child and challenge them as they progress.

• In Hatch Match, your child will build confidence in reading simple vocabulary as they match pairs of pictures with words. They can also choose between three levels of difficulty, depending on how strong their reading skills are.

• In I-Spy, your child can find hidden objects on the beach, such as bucket, spade or fish, as well as revise vocabulary, boosting their concentration. As they progress, objects get harder to find, requiring serious focus!

• In Rub-a-Dub, your child will be guided by the narrator to swipe away sand and beach towels to discover objects such as cake and pizza hidden beneath. Tapping and swiping away the holiday-themed scenes will develop their motor skills and hand–eye co-ordination. 


The British Council, experts in teaching English, and Aardman, the Academy Award®-winning animation studio, have combined their experience, expertise and passion for teaching to create Learning Time with Timmy, an innovative learning experience for children aged two to six years.

Learning Time with Timmy includes face-to-face courses, three educational apps and an online series available on YouTube and TV to help your child to develop and become a confident learner of English.

Q: What is an APK File?

A: An Android Package Kit (APK for short) is the package file format used by the Android operating system for distribution and installation of mobile applications. Just like Windows (PC) systems use an .exe file for installing software, Android does the same.

Q: Why CloudApks.com can guarantee APK 100% safe?

A: Whenever someone wants to download an APK file from CloudApks.com, we'll check the corresponding APK file on Google Play and allow user download it directly (of course, we'll cache it on our server). If the APK file does not exist on Google Play, we'll search it in our cache.

Q: If I install an APK from CloudApks.com, will I be able to update the app from the Play Store?

A: Yes, absolutely. The Play Store installs APKs it downloads from Google's servers, and sideloading from a site like CloudApks.com goes through a very similar process, except you're the one performing the downloading and initiating the installation (sideloading).
As soon as the Play Store finds a version of the app newer than the one you've sideloaded, it will commence an update.

Q: What are Android Application permissions?

A: Applications require access to certain systems within your device. When you install an application, you are notified of all of the permissions required to run that application.
