Exploring English: Magna Carta
Monday 18 July 2016 to Sunday 07 August 2016
online, Future Learn platform

Future Learn platform and the British Council introduce Exploring English: Magna Carta, a free online course starting on 4 April.

About the course

This free online course will start by looking at the events that led to the signing of the Magna Carta in 1215, before examining the role the Magna Carta has played in shaping history – from American independence to liberation movements around the world. Finally, it will look at the relevance of the Magna Carta to the 21st century.

At each step of the course, our video tutor and team of educators will guide you through the topic and introduce a language focus, by looking at some examples of English in use in videos and texts. Short quizzes will help you check your understanding and you’ll be asked to join discussions with other learners around the world. 


The course is aimed at non-native English speakers at around intermediate level (approximately B1 on the CEFR) or above.
