Brand new demonstration lessons at the British Council’s Open Day
Experience British Council’s teaching methodology and fun learning environment with free demonstration lessons and English level tests

Summer is the best time to get prepared for the new challenges that will come along with the start of the new school year. The British Council is organising an Open Day on Sunday 5 July 2015 at its English language centre in Admiralty.  Parents of pre-school through secondary students and students themselves will be able to experience the unique teaching methodology and courses, and immerse themselves in a fun, English-only environment in the afternoon.

The newly-launched demonstration lessons include Playgroup demonstration lessons, which aim to build students’ interest in English learning at an early age, and Phonics demonstration lessons that allow K2 and K3 students to experience phonics learning with highly experienced British Council teachers who are trained in teaching Phonics with a range of interesting and multi-sensory activities. During the lesson, children will be able to learn Phonics with an understanding of the sounds, pace, rhythm and timing of language. Secondary 3 and 4 students can participate in the brand new Writing demonstration lessons to sharpen their English writing skills, which will help them expand their vocabulary and perform better in their current in-school exams and public exams in the future. The Speaking demonstration lessons are also new sessions specially designed for Secondary 5 and 6 students, in which they will learn to improve fluency when expressing opinions in English, and learn practical tips to prepare them for the oral portions of the English DSE exam paper from our internationally experienced teachers. 

There are a wide range of other demonstration lessons available for Pre-school, Kindergarten, Primary and Secondary school students, Course consultations, parents’ information sessions and free English level tests [1] will be offered.  Participants can also enjoy a special offer [1] if they register for a course during the event.

All activities are held in English, and are free of charge. Registration is required on a first-come, first-served basis.

About the British Council

The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities. We create international opportunities for the people of the UK and other countries and build trust between them worldwide.

We work in more than 100 countries and our 8,000 staff – including 2,000 teachers – work with thousands of professionals and policy makers and millions of young people every year by teaching English, sharing the arts and delivering education and society programmes. In Hong Kong, we have been doing this since 1948, giving people opportunities to learn, share and connect worldwide. 

We are a UK charity governed by Royal Charter. A core publicly-funded grant provides 20 per cent of our turnover which last year was £864 million. The rest of our revenues are earned from services which customers around the world pay for, such as English classes and taking UK examinations, and also through education and development contracts and from partnerships with public and private organisations. All our work is in pursuit of our charitable purpose and supports prosperity and security for the UK and globally.
