“We are excited about this new chapter and we hope to have more branches in the Klang Valley and other cities over the next five years. We look forward to serving these communities and bringing our unique style of teaching along with learning opportunities to them,” he added. 

“We hope that families will appreciate the convenience the new branch brings,” said Ginny Rowlands, Branch Development Manager for the British Council. “Parents can drop their children off for lessons and then get on with their shopping.”
