Community events

Community events

The British Council organises events on social media where you can ask our expert educators questions. If you have any questions about our courses or about learning English in general, you're welcome to join our live events on Facebook and YouTube. They're free and you can join as many as you want. 

What are community events?

Our community events are an opportunity to listen to teachers and experts from the British Council answering questions from learners like you. The events take place on Facebook and on YouTube and each one lasts about 30 minutes.

How do I join in?

You can find a list of events on this page. Look at the event details and if the time is suitable for you, just follow the event meeting link. If you want to ask questions, you need a Facebook or YouTube account. If you don't or can't use Facebook or YouTube, you can watch a recording of the events – see the event details page for a link to the recording.
