What does British Study Centres provide?

British Study Centres gave practical instruction in CLIL methodology and helped to build the course participants' confidence in promoting and managing a communicative and student-centred classroom in English.

By including workshops and incorporating opportunities for micro-teaching, teachers experiment with a range of activities and give feedback on each other's materials and techniques. Participants experienced 'learning by doing', 'learning by discovering', 'learning by applying' and 'learning from reflection'.
