The British Council’s priority is always to ensure the safety and well-being of our teaching centre customers, employees, and the communities in which we operate.

For this reason, we will be making changes to all face-to-face activities in Slovakia. You can find answers to any questions you may have due to closures or cancellations below.  

1. Please ensure you have the following for each face to face English lesson:

  • Notebook and stationery. For health and safety reasons, we will not provide shared stationery
  • A refillable water bottle
  • Your face mask

2. What safety measures are in place in classrooms and in premises?

Your health is our priority and we have implemented the following procedures, following government guidelines, to ensure the teaching centre is as safe as possible for our students:

  • Hand sanitizer will be available at entrance/exit to the Teaching Centre and in classrooms (you may wish to bring your own bottle of sanitizer as well)
  • Break times will be staggered to minimise contact between groups of students
  • Classrooms will be cleaned throughout the day
  • Toilets and frequently touched surfaces will be cleaned regularly
  • Class size will be small to ensure we follow social distancing guidelines.

3. Please do not come to our class/teaching centre if:

  • You are currently in self-quarantine or
  • You have been in contact with any person suspected of having been exposed to Covid-19 in the last 14 days or
