The approach is a very practical one with the emphasis on doing rather than theorizing. Not only is this a more fun and interactive way of learning, but teachers are also able to see the real benefits of classroom activities as well as the challenges they may provide. We always provide plenty of ideas and suggestions that can be adapted for use in any country and context. In addition to running English courses for teachers in England, we offer programmes for teachers in other countries and would be willing to visit your school for a short course. Details are available on request.
