The course has a wide range of topics from communicative methodologies, emergent language teaching, holistic approaches, teaching techniques, tips and tools to add to the course participants' english teaching toolbox.
One unique feature on this course is the teaching practice element, which allows the participants to practice what they learn on the course by implementing it into real face to face classes of language learners.
There are also two points on the course where participants get a chance to observe lessons from experienced and dynamic teachers at SPRACHCAFFE in order to gain inspiration and focus on certain teaching approaches and techniques as they do this.
