The course provides practical, initial training in teaching English as a foreign language.
You will be expected to teach a group of up to 12 students from the first day of the course and do a certain amount of written work. Reading tasks will also be assigned. The course is very intensive: you will need to be able to commit fully throughout the four weeks. Days last from 9am to 5pm. Outside classroom time, you will have to complete four assessed written assignments, as well as observation assignments, lesson plans and some short written tasks.

- People who are interested in language and teaching and would like the opportunity to work overseas or in the UK, whether you are a recent graduate or looking to find a new career
During input sessions you will find out more about how the English language works, in terms of grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation, as well as learn about practical teaching methodology (how to set up a classroom, best use the resources at your disposal, deal with different learners, give correction and so on.) These sessions aim to help you with your teaching practice.
In addition to input sessions, you will do at least six hours' teaching practice and observe six hours of lessons from experienced teachers. After each teaching session you will be given detailed feedback on your performance, and you will be given an opportunity to comment, reflect on and learn from the lesson observations.
