The British Council. Who we are and what we offer.
T Hello, my name’s Tom.
B And I’m Bridget.
T And we work for the British Council here in Rome.
B Everyone knows about the British Council here in Italy …
T Yes, we have language schools in Milan, Naples and Rome.
B That’s true, but the British Council is so much more than that.
T What do you mean?
B Well, it’s also an international cultural organisation operating in over 100 countries worldwide.
T So that means we must work with thousands of people.
B That’s right … 300,000 students took part in British Council courses last year.
T Oh … that’s a lot of english classes.
B But that’s not all, outside the classroom we also reach 100 million students through our digital English teaching and our mobile apps.
T Not to mention the fact that we organise around 500 cultural events, including exhibitions and performances.
B So that’s all around the world. What about here in Rome?
T Here in Rome you can find us in Via San Sebastianello.
B Next to Piazza Di Spagna.
T Yes, the teaching centre offers General and Business English courses for adults. And we teach teenagers and children at all levels and ages too.
B And there are Exam courses available for all our students, such as Cambridge and IELTS.
T We should also mention the multimedia learning technology in every classroom.
B And the fact that we offer regular and intensive courses throughout the year.
T Then of course, there are all of the free activities for our students.
B You are talking about the conversation club, workshops …
T And short individual feedback sessions with a British Council teacher for when you miss a lesson.
B … we have forgotten to include all the discounts our students get on tickets for UK cultural events.
T So, you’re right, the British Council is so much more than a language school.
B Yes. And in this series our aim is to explain more about what else the British Council has to offer.
