Teachers' Refresher Course

The Teachers' Refresher Course is designed for teachers whose first language is not English and who wish to refresh their English language skills while at the same time, explore new methodologies and different approaches to teaching a language.

The course is designed by our Teacher Training Department, and consists of lectures, workshops and communicative sessions and is ideal for teachers who wish to take home lots of practical ideas and activities to use with their own students.

Our course is recognised by the European Union Leonardo and Socrates Programmes and is therefore eligible for EU funding under the COMENIUS scheme.

The following is a selection of modules typically covered on the course:

TEACHING MODULES

  • ESOL methodologies
  • Using course books
  • Learner training
  • Phonology

LANGUAGE AWARENESS MODULES

  • Modal auxiliary verbs
  • The perfect aspect
