Build skills and confidence in English

Teenagers can be themselves in our inclusive learning environment. Our English courses encourage them to:

  • learn English as a second language and become assertive, independent and culturally aware global citizens
  • express their opinions openly, helping them to gain confidence in speaking English 
  • work on practical and challenging tasks that encourage self-expression and creative thinking  
  • collaborate in team tasks alongside classmates with a similar language level and age.

What parents need to know

How is the course delivered?

Expert teachers guide and support each student and use modern learning methods, getting students ready to use English in the real world, in university and in the workplace.

In our English language classes for teens, learners:

  • participate in engaging, interactive activities
  • enjoy stimulating speaking classes 
  • develop language skills with guidance from a qualified English teacher.

What are the learning principles? 

During the course, your teen will:

  • practise skills for success in school exams and at international universities
  • build teamwork and leadership skills by working collaboratively with classmates
  • develop their creativity and connect with learners from other cultures.

How is progress assessed? 

At the British Council, we listen to your feedback because we want our learners to have a better learning experience. We provide regular feedback on your child’s progress, along with certificates of attendance and reports on their language skills.

  • Formal and informal assessments are part of the course programme. 
  • Personalised online dashboards help you track progress together with your child. 

We will show you your child’s progress throughout the academic year in a report with information about:

  • the magazines and the projects that your child has studied
  • an assessment of the project part based on international CEFR standards
  • a graph showing you their progress throughout the assessed period.

The learning hub and your child’s progress

Our learning hub is a secure online platform that helps your child study independently and at their own pace, before and after class. This means class time is focused on improving their English-speaking and productive skills. Children can enjoy extra activities guided by their teacher, and parents can access data on progress.
