Are you a non-native English speaker who plans to teach in English in the near future? Our intensive Teaching in English course will help you gain more confidence and become more adept at teaching in English. In small groups of up to 10 students with a qualified trainer you will acquire insight into English Medium teaching, practise your English teaching skills and receive valuable feedback from the trainer and fellow teachers.

This course helps you get accustomed to English-Medium teaching (which uses English as the primary medium of instruction) and to improve your own EMI skills. We will also explore the dynamics of the international classroom and work on your personal language skills.

Course activities include:

- Vocabulary for the English Medium Instruction classroom: rephrasing, pre-teaching, daily expressions and personal vocabulary system.
- Grammar: verbs, modal verbs and questions.
- Awareness and practice of EMI methodology: scaffolding, interaction and creating a safe learning environment, dealing with questions, socializing, visual support and classroom English.
- Intercultural communication skills.
- Teaching a session.
- Pronunciation practise.

In the unfortunate event we cannot offer the course on location, a virtual classroom setting will be available for language courses. Check the course description for more information.
