Private Language Schools

My services for private language schools are designed to encourage teachers to enhance the learning experience for the students. They include:

trainer training for directors of studies or others required to deliver CPD to colleagues

syllabus and course material review and assessment.

“The teachers were all enthusiastic about the two days which were useful but enjoyable. The problem is going to be to persuade the teachers not to try to put all the ideas into practice in a single lesson!”
