How do we teach English at the British Council?

  • We make learning fun because people learn better if they enjoy being in the classroom.
  • We use different teaching techniques because different students have different learning styles.
  • We ask students to work in pairs and in groups so they develop real-life communication skills.
  • We use course books produced by specialist publishers and materials created by our teachers.
  • We provide students with language input and skills practice.
  • We also teach study skills to help you become more independent language learners.
  • We expect you to play an active part in your learning.
