There is currently understandable anxiety among parents about the health of their children with the well-reported global increase in the transmission of the H1N1 virus, commonly known as ‘swine flu.’ The situation has not been helped by some examples of sensationalist reporting in the media and it is important to retain a sense of perspective about the virus. At present, the virus is no more dangerous than a typical seasonal flu and the UK is well-prepared for such an outbreak. English Language Teaching (ELT) providers are operating as normal.
English UK will continue to provide update bulletins to members, agents and students through the website in order to help keep you fully informed about the virus. Please be reassured that the ELT industry is continuing to operate as normal and hundreds of thousands of students around the country are continuing to enjoy their educational experiences.
