#StayHome with the British Council

Our online resources will help you to make the most of your time indoors.

Staying at home is a new reality for many of us and we’ve all got to make the best out of the current situation. We’re in this together, all looking at ways we can keep ourselves and our children occupied and entertained.

But look no further, we can help you. We’ve pulled together the best of our online resources and digital platforms so that you can make the most of your time indoors.

We have a great mix of content – from helping your kids to learn English through fun songs and games, to enabling you to explore our art collection without leaving home. If you’re planning on taking the IELTS test or a Cambridge English exam in the future, we have some excellent materials to help you prepare. And finally, we haven’t forgotten the teachers out there – we have a wide range of professional development opportunities and online resources to help you become a more effective teacher of English.

We have something for everyone! There’s no better time to learn new skills than right now.

Pick and choose the sections that interest you the most and start exploring.
