About this course

Would you like your child to speak more fluently with confidence and improve their written English skills?  We offer a skills based Upper Secondary course for young adults aged 15-17 years, using material specially created for learners in South Asia.

The course is designed to help young adults improve their communication skills through fun and interactive lessons.  At the British Council, we believe that if learners enjoy their classes they are more motivated to progress in their studies.

We encourage our learners to share their opinions, critically analyse the world around them and improve their language ability through the core syllabus tasks. Learning continues outside the classroom with regularly set homework and tips for independent self study.
