British Council Open Day, Saturday 8th September 10am-6pm


The British Council is organizing an open day at its brand new English Language Teaching Centre on Saturday 8 September from 10am to 6pm (521 avenue du Prado, Marseille 8ème).

Visitors will be able to discover the new high-tech teaching facilities with 8 dedicated classrooms and watch teachers in action during demonstration classes. They can also have a personalised session with one of the teachers to evaluate their level of English and their needs and sign up to one of the courses if desired. Refreshments will be served.

From 17th September onwards, the Centre will be offering  a wide range of English language courses for adults, teenagers and children. Courses for adults will include General English, Business English and Preparation for IELTS and Cambridge exams. These will be offered in 30-hour, progressive modules with lessons twice a week (over 8 weeks) or once a week (over 15 weeks). Courses for young learners will run during the school year (60 hours total) and intensively during the school holidays. A range of timetabling options are available depending on students’ proficiency level.

With over 77 years’ experience teaching English across the globe and 300,000 face to face students, the British Council’s English courses are delivered by experienced and qualified professionals. All British Council teachers have at least a first degree and a qualification in English language teaching.
