Dear students

Recognising the traditions of the holy month of Ramadhan, the British Council will adjust its teaching schedule so that it doesn’t interfere with Iftar. We hope the revised timing of some of our English Language classes will be more convenient for you during this month of piety and work. 

Please also note that in the weeks before the beginning of Ramadhan and after it we will follow our regular, scheduled class times throughout the week.
