“It has been a great experience working with British Council to deliver this programme on business English communications to our officials across the state. The specially customised and curated courses delivered holistic understanding of communicating in the English language that will add long-term value to our officers.

We have received very positive feedback from the candidates and look forward to initiating more programmes like this, with British Council,” says Pachuau.
