After the reopening of the classes, the British Council will focus on providing a dynamic and interactive learning environment which will help the learners to build their social skills.
Antonius Raghubansie, Director of Learning Services, British Council India, said, “The past 18 months have been an adjustment for both, the teachers as well as the learners. We know that our learners have missed attending classes in-person. We have gathered regular feedback from our students who felt comfortable to return to our classrooms once again, and to that end, we are implementing strict health and safety protocols in our premises to make our classrooms a safe space for learning. We look forward to welcoming learners back to our centres, as do our teachers, who have been teaching online for the last 18 months.”
"As the education sector grappled with challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the British Council was finding new and innovative ways to satisfy learners’ needs across the country. The transition to online classes and remote working - for students and professionals respectively - resulted in an increasing number of individuals looking to improve their English communication skills, as well as acquire other 21st century skills necessary in a digital-first world," said council through a press release.
