My girl went for their holiday course previously. It's expensive but my girl thoroughly enjoyed it. Her teacher was fantastic too. However I have to say that the counter ladies are very atas and rude - which marred an otherwise wonderful experience. Such a pity, as I wanted to sign up for their enrichment class but was really turned off by the counter lady's attitude. Mine was Tampines branch.

Hi,
Checking out Sec one course at BC. Any comment for their Sec one course?
Is your son still with BC? Which branch? My nearest branch would be either Tampines or Toa Payoh.
BC has different courses for Sec one. How do one choose? Need your valuable advise.

TIA.

For the primary school programmes, do they get British to teach?

Anybody has any experience with the Napier Road branch?

TIA

Hi,

My son is currently at Toa Payoh BR, N2 level.
He's there for 5 lessons so far.
His teacher marks his worksheets & gives simple comments e.g. good job, well done, etc.
Anyway I'm transferring him to Tampines next yr for K2 as it's nearer & the classrooms there are much spacious.

Hello all. We are planning on sending our kids for Primary 1 English courses at the British Council. Does anyone know what fees they charge for these?
