Drama Techniques for Creative Language Teaching
Integrating drama in the language classroom is both valuable and rewarding for learners and teachers alike. During the course, the English language will be brought to life by our specialist trainer, giving teachers the tools they need to engage students in lively lessons that boost confidence and communication skills.
This dynamic, group-oriented course aims to equip teachers with various dramatic techniques which can both inform teaching practice and immerse teachers and learners in the British theatrical tradition!
TEP (Teaching English Pronunciation)
Our TEP course aims to build your own awareness and knowledge of English sounds while demonstrating fun, varied and useful techniques for you to implement in your own language classroom.
This course would not only be ideal for teachers working with adults, but also for teachers of young learners working in schools where phonics and phonology form major parts of the curriculum.
Participants in this course will also be given the opportunity to attend one of our General English lessons as both a participant and an observer, to see how we put our principles into practice on a daily basis.
Teaching for Business or other Specific Needs
This course aims to equip English language teachers with the skills to teach professionals who have specific language needs for their work. Our 1-week course will enable you accurately assess your student’s needs and to create relevant, motivating training material suitable for ESP (English for Specific Purposes) classes, whether small groups or 1:1.
