‘We are excited about the opening of the new English language centre in Tsim Sha Tsui, which will establish a new benchmark in the British Council’s global network and reinforce our role as the UK’s organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities in Hong Kong,’ said Robert Ness. ‘English is one of the three focuses of our work as it helps open up opportunities for people of all ages in Hong Kong. We are confident that this new myClass centre will provide an enjoyable and fruitful English learning experience for our customers.’
‘The British Council has 35 years of teaching experience in Hong Kong and we are always working to increase the quality of our courses and encourage our students to use English in real life situations. Since the launch of myClass in January 2013, more and more adults are enjoying their learning experience, proving that this flexible and outstanding product is well-received by our customers. With the opening of the new myClass centre, we will continue our commitment to offer English Language learners innovative learning choices in more locations in Hong Kong,’ added Mhairi-Anne González.
