Courses at the British Council are designed and conducted by the world’s leading English experts. With our eighty years of experience, combined with up-to-date methodologies and cutting-edge technology, you can be assured that we will help you to achieve your language goals. But why else should you learn at the British Council in Singapore? For many students, the benefits go far beyond new and improved English skills.
Four learning benefits beyond English skills
Our lessons are taught in a positive and inclusive learning environment, where students can feel comfortable practising English. Led by friendly and experienced teachers, classes are designed to help all learners reach their potential, irrespective of age, ability, or difference. We want you to enjoy a motivating, engaging and interactive experience that allows you to acquire mastery of English gradually, alongside the confidence to use your skills in everyday life. Your progress, supported by the encouragement of staff and peers, can have a remarkable impact on your self-belief and openness to new challenges, not just in English enrichment but other areas of your life, too.
A growing social network
Learning English can be a fantastic opportunity to meet and socialise with others. Whether you’re keen to make new friends from around the world or network professionally, we organise regular trips and excursions for students, together with a host of free classes and clubs. Improve your English in a fun and relaxed way with free membership to our active MyClub and MyNetwork weekly language, professional and leadership workshops, networking events and activities. You’ll be surprised how much progress you can make by practising English informally and outside of the classroom.
Continued personal development
Learning is a lifelong journey that we encourage all of our students to proactively engage in. Setting yourself goals and embarking on a plan to achieve them is one of the best ways to nurture your personal and professional development, opening up new career opportunities, boosting your self-esteem, and sparking new passions and interests. For students who have not been in a classroom environment for some years, our fun and stimulating lessons can reignite a love for learning and sense of accomplishment in achieving personal goals.
Stronger professional relationships
Being able to communicate effectively in the workplace is essential to building strong relationships with colleagues, conveying the right impression to your employer, motivating a team, and expanding your professional network. Learn how to easily instigate a conversation in English, expand your vocabulary, write with confidence and more with our General English course, or explore a variety of Professional Skills workshops tailored to specific areas of communication, from conflict handling to public speaking, improving your English writing and grammar for work.
