Our English for Teachers courses are designed for people who want to improve their English in the context of teaching, education and research. They are suitable for experienced professionals, people preparing for their first job in an English-speaking environment, students preparing for related courses and people who want to improve their career prospects. Typical learners on the course are able to use the main structures of the language with some confidence and have a wide range of vocabulary. They can adapt their language to a variety of situations, and they do not rely on fixed patterns of language or short, simple utterances. However, they may have trouble with some unfamiliar subject areas, and lack control over longer, more complex language.
Because the courses are delivered to order, and the syllabus designed to meet individual and collective needs, the timetable is flexible, and the classes can be delivered to meet your requirements.
We can offer our English for Teachers courses either at Burlington School or in your school or office, to allow you more flexibility with time.
The courses are designed to teach students the language skills they need for a career in the English Teaching sector. Topics covered in the course include:
