Hi everyone! I'm from Qatar. Nice to meet you. It's my first time studying online. I hope to learn a lot from the course and from all of you!

Welcome everyone. I'm Canadian but living in Scotland. The last time I studied anything was forty years ago … I'm a bit nervous! Good luck, everyone!

Hello. I'm so happy to be doing this course. I've finished two other online courses this year so I'm looking forward to my third. I'm from Vietnam by the way. Looking forward to meeting you all!

Hi! Looks like I'm the first one here so … hi to everyone who joins the course and nice to meet you! Good luck with the course and see you in the next lesson!

Tips

1. Keep your introduction short and clear.

2. Say hello and give a little bit of information about yourself. Don’t say anything too private or personal.

3. You can say what you hope to get or learn.

4. Wish people good luck.

5. You don’t have to write full sentences.

6. You might use more exclamation marks (!) than in formal writing because it looks friendly.

These courses are good. It's a good opportunity to interact with so many students across the globe. It is flexible and convenient because I can learn whenever i have free time. They are interactive. More interactive when it comes to writing, but less when it comes to speaking. Please make more courses about speaking also.

Hello Vidyasagar

Thanks for your feedback. I wanted to let you know that we are working on some new Speaking skills pages. I'm afraid it will be several months before they are ready, but please do keep an eye out for them in the future.

All the best

I like online courses because it is flexible, so I can get lessons whenever I have time. And I can take courses that are not available in my country. Also in online courses there are people from different countries and backgrounds which really enriching the feedback for most online-course students.

I like studying online because It's on my time. But the British council doesn't take it very engaging because they didn't provide suggestions or correct the mistake in the comment section. So, I don't feel any motivation to give comments.

Hello Mahfuzur Rahman

We would love to be able to provide feedback for our users, but I'm afraid that we just have the resources to be able to offer such a service for free. Please know that we're happy to help with short, specific questions about anything on any of our pages, so if you ever such a question, please do ask it here.
