Our aim is for every student to:
- communicate clearly and confidently in English
- think creatively and imaginatively
- succeed at school
- realise his/her potential in examinations
- be more independent in his/her learning
- enjoy his/her learning
British Council teachers are trained to follow a communicative approach to language teaching and learning. This involves pair work, group work and project work, and promotes ‘learning through doing’.
As the UK’s principal cultural relations organisation, we are committed to equality of opportunity, to valuing and managing diversity and to taking positive action to promote these. The British Council recruit teachers on the basis of their competencies and not on their origin , nationality or gender. All our teachers of English are highly qualified and master well the English language.
Juniors 6 to 12 years old
Your child is placed into course based on a combination of both age and ability to ensure a more harmonious classroom environment. Your child studies with other children of similar level of English and age.
We are refreshing our course books giving your children the most up-to-date materials to help them on their English Language Learning journey. During the lessons children learn lots of English through songs, games, puzzles. They’ll make new friends and have fun too!
Seniors 13 to 17 years old
We provide more opportunities for our students to become familiar with Cambridge University English Exams throughout their learning career.
Cambridge ESOL offers the world's leading range of certificates for learners and teachers of English - taken by over 3 million people in 130 countries.
Our courses are linked to these Young Learner Exams. Taking these exams helps to motivate children by giving them achievable stress free goals to work towards.
Cambridge Young Learners English Test (YLE) give a consistent measure of how well 6–12 year–olds are doing in the skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing. Tests are designed to make learning fun and children are encouraged by working towards certificates and earning ‘shields’ that record their progress.
Young Learners encourages younger children to work towards three certificates, Starters, Movers and Flyers.
KET (Key English Test) for Schools is a certificate that shows a pupil can deal with everyday written and spoken English at a basic level. The content and topics are targeted at the interests and experience of school pupils.

FCE (First Certificate English) at this level learners can use language independently for working and studying at an upper intermediate level. At Level B2, learners can be expected to keep up a conversation on a fairly wide range of topics, make notes while someone is talking, or write a letter, including non-standard requests, express opinions and give reasons, and answer predictable or factual questions.
CAE (Cambridge Advanced English) Learners at this level are expected to be able to use the structures of English with ease and fluency. At this level learners are expected to cope in most situations that would arise in an English-speaking country without making any efforts.
