We are drawing on the expertise of our wide network of teaching centres across the world to offer a virtual learning experience that has already proven to be effective.

Virtual lessons are like any other classroom lessons you attend 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 they are delivered via Zoom – a user-friendly web-conferencing software.

Please have a look at our Student Guide to Virtual Classrooms for more information on how to prepare for your first online lesson and how to use the Zoom software. We hope you will enjoy the opportunity to continue meeting your classmates and your English teacher from the convenience and safety of your home.
