Apply now for free English classes at the British Council

*FREE* English classes are for people who want to improve their English language skills. The classes are taught by a selected group of qualifying teachers undertaking a training programme, the Cambridge English CELTA course. The classes are supervised by qualified Cambridge English tutors and form part of the final assessment of the new teachers. The *Free* English classes are only available at the teaching centre on Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur.

How to apply?
After deciding which course you would like to attend, make an appointment to come into the WSD teaching centre, 142C Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur for a placement test. You will receive an email confirming your appointment. Bring this email with you on the day of the placement test.

If you test at the right level, you can pay your attendance deposit, after which you will be provided with the information about your class and classroom. Alternatively, we will contact you shortly before the start of the course to let you know if you have been selected for a place.

Who can apply?

Malaysians and foreign residents with a Malaysian bank account (see below) who want to improve their English language skills can apply. You must be 18 years old or more. Your current level of English should be elementary or intermediate.

You do not have to pay any course fees for these classes but you need to commit to regular attendance for the full course. We will ask you for an attendance deposit of RM300. This will be refunded to you if you attend at least fifteen (15) of the nineteen (19) classes you register for.


After your course has finished, the full attendance deposit will be returned to your bank account if you have fully attended at least fifteen (15) of the nineteen (19) classes. You will be notified by email when the refund has been made.
We are only able to make refunds to bank accounts with Maybank, RHB, CIMB, Public Bank and HSBC.
If you attend less than fifteen (15) classes, regardless of the reason, we are unable to issue a refund.
