British Council welcomes learners back to the classroom in Kolkata

Kolkata : The British Council on Tuesday announced the

re-opening of its Teaching Centres in Kolkata for adult learners.

” With British Council’s learners transitioning back to physical

classrooms, they will be able to avail the advantages of a dynamic and interactive learning environment that will enable collaborative thinking and provide them with the right opportunities to participate and build social skills,” a British Council statement said.

As the education sector grappled with challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic,the British Council was finding new and innovative ways to satisfy learners’ needs across the country.

Speaking on the re-opening of the English Learning Centre, Antonius

Raghubansie, Director of Learning Services, British Council India,

said, “The past 18 months have been an adjustment for both, the

teachers as well as the learners. We know that our learners have

missed attending classes in-person. We have gathered regular feedback from our students who felt comfortable to return to our classrooms once again, and to that end, we are implementing strict health and safety protocols in our premises to make our classrooms a safe space for learning. We look forward to welcoming learners back to our centres, as do our teachers, who have been teaching online for the last 18 months.”

Designed to cater to the specific needs of learners, British Council

has launched two diverse courses – myClass and Skills for IELTS.

Both courses will be delivered in-person only, at the British Council’s

English Learning Centre, by highly qualified teachers. The myClass

the course will be available in the three options – ‘Everyday English’,

‘Workplace English’ and ‘Spoken English’. Each myClass lesson has been designed to not just improve English language but also critical

thinking skills for a wide range of situations.
