If we need to close the teaching centre in line with government guidelines, we guarantee that classes will continue online. Online classes will include the same number of hours as face-to-face classes.
We are drawing on the expertise of our wide network of teaching centres across the world to offer a virtual classroom experience that has already proven to be effective.
Virtual lessons for adults are like any other classroom lessons at the British Council. You will practise your speaking and writing with your teacher and classmates in real time, and do pair and group work. Of course, just like in any other lesson, you will also practise your listening and reading skills, and learn lots of new language. The difference is that it will be delivered via Zoom: user-friendly web-conferencing software.
Virtual lessons for young learners are designed to cover the same language skills and deliver the same progress as regular classes. Virtual classrooms include live lessons with the teacher and self-study activities to be completed online before and after each live lesson. We are committed to ensuring that all children can study in a safe and supportive environment and our platform incorporates a number of features designed to keep children safe while they are online.
We will send individual emails to students and parents with more details about our virtual classrooms and when the first virtual class for each course will begin.
