How does myClass work?

myClass is an English course for busy people. 

In myClass, you buy a myClass Pass with credits attached. Your pass allows you to study for a set period of time. You can use your credits when you want. 

You are placed in a level based on your ability. 

There are classes each day. You can book the class you wish to attend up to 10 minutes before the start of the class as long as there is a seat available. You can cancel a class up to 24 hours before the class without losing a credit.

Each level is organised into themes. All levels build on each other and share themes to enable you to measure your progress. You can decide how many lessons from each theme you do depending on your interests and learning needs. For each theme you complete you earn a badge.

Each lesson is 1.5 hours. There are a wide variety of lessons available per level. Once you have progressed you can move on to the next level. You can book all these lessons using your online account so you decide what you study and when. 

All lessons take place in our British Council Napier Road Centre.
