    Format

    Our experienced faculty follow an interactive and hands-on approach that enables you to discover the principles and practices of teaching English as a foreign language. During workshops and lectures, you will learn valuable and practical teaching methods and techniques. You will then apply what you learn, as you and your peers work together to plan and teach lessons with a class of non-native English speakers.
