Whether just out of curiosity, or to be one step ahead

The online world can provide us with as much material to satisfy our curiosity, as it does to stimulate it. Thanks to the internet and mobile devices, it might feel like we have a whole world of information at our fingertips. 

However, perhaps you think it would be amazing to start a more structured learning process with the help of smart apps and distance learning instead of just surfing the web? If so, then Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are for you. 

The “Future Learn” platform is set to become the new learning platform in a rapidly changing world. The British Council is one of the supporters of this initiative, a result of collaboration between leading universities and cultural institutions, that provides free courses across diverse fields. It invites us to learn and explore through programmes, texts, videos and online discussions that can be accessed through PCs, tablets and mobile devices.

We agree with Future Learn that learning should be a fun and social experience. Take a look at the courses that we have carefully prepared for you and we hope that you will agree too. 

Are you preparing for IELTS? Then these courses are for you! 

You might already be familiar with our popular online preparation course Road to IELTS. You can access the training programme on our website for ten hours free of charge. If you register for IELTS through the British Council, you will gain another 20 hours of access for free. 

There is also now an open online course provided on Future Learn which will help you prepare for your IELTS exam. The course starts on 17 October 2016.

There is also new training, starting on October 24 2016, that might excite parents too. British Council educators will share their insights and experiences, so that parents can learn how to create the best possible environment in which their children can learn English as a second language. The course also help parents monitor their child's progress. If you want to find out about teaching children how to learn a second language, this course is perfect for you.
