Course Details

English for Teachers

This course is designed for all teachers of teenagers and adults, not only those who teach English, and who need to improve rather language skills so that they can perform better in the English-medium classroom.

The course will help participants to improve their competence and fluency in English at the same time as learning specific teaching skills - such as leading discussions and structuring lectures - and will also include some CLIL theory.  A free online course is available as soon as students enrol on the course, giving them the opportunity to start improving their English before arriving at the school.

The course offers 19.5 hours of tuition per week, plus 3 hours of teacher-orientated activites. Participants will also be encouraged to join in the school's regular programme of cultural and social activities after class, in order to benefit fully from their time in London.

Participants should have at least an intermediate (B1) level of English.

Dates, 2013:  16th to 27th June;   1st to 12th July

Course fees:   £695.00 + £90 registration fee.

This price does not include airport transfers or accommodation.
