UAE NEWS: British Council is reopening advanced English language courses in the UAE

Classes will be integrated with online education that students can receive at home.

Dubai: British Council has resumed face-to-face studies in the UAE in the UAE beginning the new school term.

Classes for high school students, primary school students and adults are now available across Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah and will be integrated with online instructional courses where students can practice independently at home.

This development comes on the heels of guidelines issued by the local health authority and government, that is, educational institutions must follow numerous health and safety precautions to protect employees, teachers and students. In addition to physical distance, other precautionary measures include door temperature checks, use of face masks and hygiene stations.

Commenting on the resumption, Gareth Newman, director of English, British Council, said: “We started IELTS, an English language test, in June and that went really well. Since then, we have been working hard over the past few months to ensure that our face-to-face classes can be brought to a safer and happier environment, using the same health and safety measures in line with government guidelines. We started adult studies in August with younger students in September. We offer as many choices as possible, so if a parent wants their child to study online, they can learn. And those who go back to classes and know that classes can be delivered online if necessary. ”
