“By September 2022, more than 1,500 students in 3,500 classes from 20 countries including Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria, Egypt, Qatar, the UAE, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and Kuwait linked up to provide an incredible intercultural experience,” the British Council said in a statement on Tuesday.

It said: “Connecting cultures brings together British Council students from around the world, so they can enjoy a truly international experience without travelling abroad.”

“As from October this year we are planning to involve more than 30,000 students in more than 40 countries,” the statement added.

Speaking about the experience, Hamish Buchan, the British Council’s regional head of Young Learners, said the initiative promotes an educational and social experience, combining multiculturalism, English, and key skills for the future”.

“We have been using our teachers, in our global network of teaching centers, to our advantage by connecting students in different countries through online activities, including video links,” Buchan added.

Ghassen, one of our young students, said sharing experiences, traditions, and thoughts with other students from other countries, and receiving replies from them was “so exciting”.

Every lesson is brought to life with engaging activities based on real-world topics, capturing the children’s attention and helping them speak English with confidence, the perfect preparation for their future in a globalized world.
