How are winter English courses for adults and young learners delivered?

While most of our adult and young learner courses are being taught face to face, our Saturday Young Learner courses are currently taught in the Virtual Classroom. 

What safety measure are in place in classrooms and on the 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 students and our staff: 

  • Temperature check is available on entering the building. Please use it and do not enter if you temperature is higher than 37.8
  • Hand sanitizer will be available at entrance/exit to building and in the Teaching Centre, in Teaching Centre reception and by the toilets (you may wish to bring your own bottle of sanitizer for the classroom)
  • Temperature check and hand sanitizer are also available at Rakoczi building
  • Break times will be staggered to minimise contact between groups of students
  • Classrooms will be cleaned before each lesson starts
  • Toilets and frequently touched surfaces will be cleaned regularly
  • We ask that students adhere to current recommended social distancing guidelines.
  • Children will be encouraged to wash their hands with soap and water on arrival and at break time
  • Children will be reminded about social distancing requirements on arrival, during class and at break times.

Please refer to our Health and Safety page for further details.

What will happen if face-to-face English courses are suspended again?

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.
