Secondly, students access world-class British Council materials online with teacher guidance, for inputs such as vocabulary, listening practice and grammar. Additionally, the teacher and students meet regularly in an online 'virtual classroom', so students log in and join the class from the comfort of their own homes. Sharon Memis, Area Director, West India, British Council said, "Blended learning is an innovative way to change the, 'delivery mechanism' of education. We have brought the best in English language teaching and combined it with technology to make it accessible to more students. So we are excited about this, and plan to offer it to English learners across India."
