for your information – free online course

Hi guys,

I guess I have already recommended this English course to you.

Today, I received an e-mail which I want to pass on to you:

We wish to make you aware that the British Council English language courses focused on the FCE or First Certificate Exam in English will be withdrawn for free access via the ALISON free learning platform at the end of January 2015. The British Council has decided that it now wishes to charge for access to these courses worldwide and hence, free access can no longer be provided. We regret that we must withdraw these resources, but we are grateful to the British Council for providing these courses to our learners for the past five years.

As of February 1st 2015, we will not be accepting new learners for these resources. We will, however, be allowing all learners registered on the courses 3 months to complete the courses, and a record of completion will remain as part of your ALISON learner record.

Should you wish to study this British Council English suite of courses, please register / start studying these courses before the end of the month. You may wish to inform your friends and contacts about the withdrawal of these courses via email, your blog or your Facebook account so that they may have the same opportunity as you have to study.

Finally, you will be aware that ALISON has an ever increasing portfolio of excellent English language resources across our free learning platform. Please take time to review these resources in the coming weeks. Over one million students study English on ALISON every year and that number is set to grow rapidly.

Yours in Free Learning,

ALISON Publishing

So, if you want to access the course without paying, you have to subscribe within January. Think about it. It’s free and you’ll receive a certificate in the end!

Have a nice day!
