Advanced English Update for Teachers 2020

Rating: 0/5

Teachers who work in non-English speaking countries often find they 'lose touch' with what is appropriate in English or with new developments in the language. They also enjoy and benefit from a ‘brush-up’ of their English in an English speaking environment.
The course is of a highly practical and participatory nature. You will be engaged in and challenged by a variety of fruitful activities. Although principally a language improvement course, many of the approaches you experience on this course will benefit your own teaching. This course also provides a large amount of English practice throughout.
