English lessons for parents
Every year the BISB offers free English lessons for parents. The number and level of groups are decided on an annual basis depending on how many parents sign up and their levels of English. The lessons are usually held at school, but this year due to COVID-19 measures, the lessons are run virtually on ZOOM. For more information contact the English teacher Mr Eastwood at firstname.lastname@example.org.
