The course will help you work on your English fluency and perfect your skills for primary teaching. The aims include:

  • Gain confidence in using the English language.

Course content

We vary the content of each course according to work on the particular needs, teaching contexts and interests of the students in the group. However, there are standard components that will be taught throughout the course which are:

ELT methodology
Language analysis
Language input
Projects and research followed by presentation.

The course also includes a visit to a UK primary school, providing your course is taking place during term time (we cannot guarantee visits in the first or final weeks of a school term or during half-term).

Course methodology

Each session employs current language teaching methodology to reflect participants' classroom practice. All lessons also contain language instruction and pedagogic practice. Participants work with all four skills with particular emphasis on speaking and listening.
