Asking questions to the team

As well as answering your questions here on the course we want to give you as many opportunities as possible to communicate with the educator team.

During the course, we offer several events where you can ask the educators any questions that come up. These can be questions about language or about British culture - anything you’re interested in!

★ Facebook Live ★

Our first Facebook live session of the course was held on Thursday 12th September at 2pm UK time on the British Council’s LearnEnglish Facebook page.

If you don’t use Facebook or you couldn’t join us for the broadcast you can watch a video of the event on this step. You can also find a recording of the event on the LearnEnglish Facebook page here.

The educators enjoyed discussing the course and learning English with you! Thanks for all your questions on this step and during the broadcast.

Below are links to resources related to the topics discussed by the educators in the video.
