The British Council is a quasi-autonomous non-governmental organisation based in the United Kingdom which specialises in international educational and cultural opportunities.
The British Council says its aim is “to build mutually beneficial cultural and educational relationships between the United Kingdom and other countries, and increase appreciation of the United Kingdom’s creative ideas and achievements.” Its overseas network extends to 233 locations in 107 countries and territories.
There are 70 British Council Teaching Centres in 53 countries. It taught 1,189,000 class hours to 300,000 learners in 2006/07. The British council claims to be ‘the world’s largest English language teaching organisation’.
Within the UK the British Council administers the International Association of the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience (IAESTE). This programme operates in over 80 countries worldwide and offers students, studying in the UK, the opportunity to take an internship as part of an international placement working abroad.
The British Council offers on YouTube a series of videos related to teaching and learning English. In this video you are about to watch, ESO 1 students must find as many sentences containing an ADVERB OF FREQUENCY (e.g.: always, usually, generally, normally, often, sometimes, seldom, rarely, hardly ever, never) as possible (attention: not all of them appear in writing, but the speakers do use them!). Write them down and submit the paper to your teacher BEFORE FRIDAY 12TH NOVEMBER. E-mails to email@example.com are also accepted, but they must be clearly identified with your name, your class and your number; the same deadline applies for e-mails.
