Where to study English, if not in the United Kingdom? Kyiv Post readers voted for the British Council as the best English Language School of Kyiv in 2010. The British Council is the United Kingdom’s international educational and cultural organization, where you can study English as if you were in the U.K.
The British Council School has a network of 127 centers around the world sharing materials, teaching experience and ideas about course design. There are 25 teachers at the British Council in Kyiv, most of who are native speakers. The number of students in each group is limited to 12, because the individual approach is one of the British Council’s values.
“While other schools teach their students grammar, we focus on their communication skills,” said Volodymyr Sheiko from the British Council’s press center. “We explain to our students that grammar is just a small part of the language. The most important thing is to feel free in the English-speaking environment – to talk, read and understand English properly.”
