English Language Institute

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionWelcome to Brit Fort English Hub! We are an English School that welcomes adult students from all over India for a 15- day residential program. Our students live, eat and study here at the school.
    As adult students they are focused on the goal of improving their English to either help them in existing business transactions, or to prepare for international travel. Many of our students come to us with a working knowledge of the English language and are here to improve existing skills...
    This is where we require YOUR help.
    The one component our instructors can not offer is conversation with "Native Speakers".
    Your role would be to interact with the students in a structured 4-hour class each day....and simply talk. Games, conversation and other types of verbal interaction provides the students with experience that non-native speakers just cannot teach.
    In return we offer comfortable and secure accommodation, 3 Home cooked meals per day prepared by our in-house cook Fatima, access to laundry facilities, WiFi and plenty of time to explore and sight-see in beautiful Fort Kochi and Kerala. We ask for a minimum commitment of one week, but we hope you would be able to stay for most of the class session.
