    The British Culture Project is the perfect way to work on fluency and build confidence in English. The flexible nature of the course allows students to work to their own level, explore topics that interest them, and expand their knowledge of English.

    The British Culture Project is suitable for students of all ages and all levels of English. Lessons are structured to be communicative and encourage students to grow in confidence as they speak.

    During lessons, students go onto the streets to interact with local people and investigate the British way of life.  Teachers use games, a range of different media, pair work and group work in lessons to ensure that the learning experience is enjoyable and engaging.

    Throughout the course, students work towards a final presentation to demonstrate what they have learnt during their time with us. These presentations are creative and dynamic, allowing students to express language and new information in a style that suits them. A presentation might involve drama, using media and computer skills, or a formal style of presenting with notes and diagrams.
