Facebook Live

Educators hold a Facebook Live event

This week we held another Facebook Live broadcast where you had a final opportunity to ask the educators your questions about the IELTS speaking test and language learning.

The Facebook live broadcast was held on Thursday 5th November at 1.30pm UK time on the British Council LearnEnglish Facebook page.

Don’t worry if you couldn’t join us live – you can watch a recording of the event on this step. You can also find the video on Facebook here (from about minute 30).

Thanks to everyone who left questions on this step for the educators to discuss and to all of you who joined us live. Your participation really helped to make the live event a big success. We had a surprise guest too – an extremely cute one!

We’ll add links to useful resources here. Please check back later.
