Summary
Physical classes to begin from November 22, 2021
Classes will be offered for the Secondary Plus course

British Council has decided to begin offline classes at two of its centres in India -- Delhi and Chennai -- for its Secondary Pulse course, after being shut for around 18 months due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Physical classes will begin from November 22. The Secondary Plus course is for the 13-17 age group. The face-to-face setting will give students the opportunity to communicate with classmates, practise grammar and receive more personalised feedback from the teacher.

British Council India has gathered feedback from its students who desired to return to the classrooms once again. The classes will begin with the council ensuring that all COVID-19 protocols and safety precautions are followed.

British Council aims to focus on providing a dynamic and interactive learning environment through these offline classes. The idea is to help the learners rebuild their social skills.

“The transition to online classes and remote working -- for students and professionals respectively -- resulted in an increasing number of individuals looking to improve their English communication skills, as well as acquire other 21st century skills necessary in a digital-first world,” said British Council India through a press release.

In September, British Council had announced the re-opening of its teaching centres in Kolkata for adult learners.

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

Additionally, it has also launched two new diverse courses -- myClass and Skills for International English Language Testing System (IELTS). Both courses will be delivered in-person and at the British Council’s English Learning Centre by highly qualified teachers.

The myClass 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.

Skills for IELTS, on the other hand, is a specialised preparatory course designed to maximise chances of success on test day for individuals planning to pursue higher education and work in English-speaking countries.

With this course, learners will work on the necessary skills such as listening, speaking, reading and writing, to ace the IELTS exam.

Classes are open for registration in Delhi and Chennai. To book a seat or learn more about the offline classes, call the British Council customer care representative at 0120-4569000 / 6684353.
