How a British Council course changed their lives

Poliana (English Online student)

“This course helped with my goals as I am always looking for opportunities to travel abroad for work. It helped me keep in contact with English and improve my level. I learned new things like vocabulary, and at the same time stayed in contact with the language from the comfort of my home. These classes helped me address these doubts and become more confident while speaking. All the courses are different and complimentary, and do not overlap with each other, so if you want to learn English and be in contact with the language, multiple courses are helpful.”

Gowthamasanghar (English Online student)

“The course helped me improve my fluency. It also helped improve my vocabulary and grammar. I had joined the British Council as a Pre-Intermediate student. Now I am at the Upper-Intermediate level. That has been the improvement. I’ve grown more confident and I can speak with everyone without any hesitation. I think that everyone should complete three courses because each one has different learnings which everyone must learn. Therefore, I suggested this to my friends also.”

Sharad Shekhar (English Online student)

“The courses helped me to develop my fluency and vocabulary. Earlier, I used to pause/break while speaking because I didn’t have the words to express myself. Now I’m much more fluent and have more words in my dictionary. My basics in all areas of a language such as vocabulary, grammar and writing skills have improved along with my confidence. The course helped my pronunciation develop and helped me to become a fluent English speaker.”

What does the English for Work course offer?

The English for Work course includes: 

  • Live group classes. Attend 1 per week! 


Each class has a duration of 55 minutes and can be booked by up to 15 students. Our live group classes include a set topic and focus on speaking and listening tasks. You will learn with other students at the same level as you, and you will receive instant feedback on your speaking, grammar and vocabulary. After each class, the teacher will share valuable class materials with you for additional practice. 


  • Grammar and pronunciation Live25 sessions. Attend 4 per calendar month!


Each session has a duration of 25 minutes. Use these sessions as an opportunity for additional practice between your weekly group classes. If you need extra help with understanding English verb tenses or how to use intonation in a sentence, Live25 sessions offer you the opportunity to advance your knowledge.


  • Online exercises. Study in your own time and at your own pace!


Online exercises are an excellent way to gain knowledge of the topic prior to engaging in class discussion. You will be prepared in advance to ask questions and your teacher will have additional time in class to focus on the more challenging material. If you prefer, you can also complete the online exercises after your class and this will help you consolidate your learnings. 

Our teachers

All our teachers are highly qualified British Council English teaching professionals. Our teachers are experienced in working with students from many different countries and are online teaching specialists. Teacher training takes place regularly and teaching quality is monitored and evaluated by a team of specialists to ensure we deliver the best learning experience possible.

If you prefer a certain teacher, you can choose to only book classes with them.

However, we believe it is pedagogically very valuable to have different teachers who have different pronunciations and speak different dialects of English. This exposure to different accents is essential in a world where English is spoken by millions of people from different countries, and we think this is the best way for our students to be better prepared to deal with real-life situations.
