Learn English your way with private lessons

If you're looking to improve your English language skills at your own pace and in your own way, then the British Council in Singapore is the place to go. It can be daunting to return to education as an adult, however, our highly qualified team of professional teachers is on hand to make your transition back into the classroom as seamless and successful as possible  – right down to delivering one-to-one or small group lessons at your convenience. So, what are you waiting for? Read on to find out how our private English lessons can help you to reach your goals this year and beyond. 

There are many reasons why students have come to us to improve their English language skills over the years. Some have specific learning goals they want to achieve. Some students want to improve their English understanding specifically in the workplace, others want to learn more conversational ways to communicate, and prepare themselves for an upcoming examination or presentation in an international setting. Several students have come to us because they simply believed that being more confident in their use of English would help them to integrate more fully into Singaporean society.

Whatever your reasons for wanting to receive English tuition in Singapore there are several options for you to choose from. Firstly, we offer one-to-one lessons, as well as small group settings, such as with your family, friends or colleagues. This enables our teachers to spend the maximum amount of time with each student, to create a more personalised learning experience, including customised course content that will help you to achieve whatever goal you're aiming for. 

Our one-to-one and small group private courses are suitable for learners of all levels and ages. Delivered as a premium service, you can expect a flexible structure, with a single point of contact throughout your study period. A skilled team member from the British Council will act as a personal assistant to guide you through your pre-course consultation. This will help to find the right teacher for you, determine the best time in your schedule for lessons, and contribute towards the development of a bespoke learning experience.
