At the British Council, we believe that language is more than just a means of communication; It is the gateway to a rich palette of culture and history. Our Culture and Literature courses are designed to take our students on a fascinating journey through the heart and soul of the countries where the language is spoken. By immersing themselves in the history, literature, film, music, customs and social norms of these peoples, our students gain a deep understanding of the language and its cultural context.

Discovering the Cultural Mosaic

To truly understand language, you need to delve into the world that shapes it. Our culture and literature courses give students a holistic view of the countries and communities that speak the language they are studying. By studying history, students trace the evolution of societies, and literature becomes a window into the hearts and minds of people. They explore the customs and social norms that underpin everyday life, allowing them to navigate cultural nuances with grace and respect.

The Power of Literature

Literature is often referred to as a mirror of culture, reflecting its values, aspirations, and struggles. Our courses focus on literature, as it allows students to get in touch with the essence of the language and its people. From classic novels to contemporary poetry, students delve into the literary masterpieces that have shaped the cultural identity of native speakers. This journey into the world of storytelling improves their language skills and deepens their cultural perception.

Film & Music

The world of film and music is another dimension of our Culture and Literature courses. Through film screenings and music sessions, students explore the visual and auditory aspects of language culture. They turn to cinematic masterpieces that depict the realities of society and enjoy melodies that resonate with the unique rhythms and emotions of language. This sensory experience further enriches their connection with the language and its cultural heritage.

A Pass to Cultural Competence

In today's globalized world, cultural competence is essential. Our Culture and Literature courses equip students with the knowledge and sensitivity needed to effectively interact with native speakers and navigate different cultural landscapes. Whether it's travel, business, or personal enrichment, these courses give our students the opportunity to bridge cultural gaps and make meaningful connections.
