Registration Information

Checking your English Level

You need to do a level check before you register for a course.  This test will place you in the correct class for your level.  You can take the test online if you are over 18 years old by booking a consultation.  If you do not have an email address, please call us on 011 7521521 or come into our branch on 70 Rakka Road, Jaffna and we will provide you with alternative ways of taking the test.

Buying your Course Book

Once you have registered for your course you will need to purchase the required book.  You can do this at the British Council Jaffna.  

Your Classmates and Teacher

There will be a maximum of 20 students in your class and your teacher will be a UK qualified professional.  

We have a diverse teaching staff which reflects the fact that English is an international language and the UK is a diverse, multi-cultural society; all our teachers are UK qualified which is reflected in the high teaching quality and effectiveness of learning. Our teaching material is from the UK which gives added cultural context to the learning.

Access to Library Services

We know how important it is to use English as much as possible when you are learning.  So we provide all students with free membership to our reference library which contains study materials appropriate for your level.

You may decide to join our main library  which has over 3,000 Books, DVDs, periodicals and newspapers.  You may participate in storytelling sessions, study skills workshops and our speaking club. Please visit our branch for more information about our library services.
