The British Council was founded to create a friendly knowledge and understanding between the people of the UK and the wider world.

Your teaching centre…

We offer a wide range of English language courses for children (5-10 years), teenagers (11-17 years) and adults at all levels, and look forward to welcoming you to one of our classrooms.

Learning needs the right environment to flourish. As we’re experts in education, our language school has been specifically designed to help teachers teach and learners learn. This helps get the most out of each session with the whole class making real progress.

Our bright and inviting classrooms stimulate learning. The latest technologies, such as interactive whiteboards, allow teachers to use a range of methods that make your lessons meaningful, enjoyable and useful.

For parents we offer peace of mind, as our language school meets the highest standards for child safety and accessibility.

When you enrol for a course you will receive many student benefits, including access to free workshops, talks and discussions about English culture and a range of discounts for goods and services.

…and Examination Centre

We offer a wide range of exams in more than 90 countries worldwide helping people gain access to trusted qualifications to support their career and study prospects.
