The course content is designed to:

- refresh their teaching knowledge and skills in an English language environment
- enhance their abilities to use new methodologies to create interesting, learner-centred lessons with materials that make English lessons ‘come alive’

Candidates can combine this programme with English language lessons and will have the opportunity to observe our teachers in the classrooms.
