Re:Start A short training course to refresh and revive teachers
These workshops look at the practical side of teaching English as a foreign language. The advice and natural examples you will be given together with the training tasks you will complete will lead you to question the effectiveness of some of your techniques and methods in the classroom.

You will learn how to put together a lesson which gets students communicating meaningfully with each other, how to contextualise language and present structure and lexis in a natural way, how to integrate the presentation of new language into motivating skills practice, and raise awareness of errors and systems of dealing with them.

In short, this course will add to a teacher's understanding and ability to implement the communicative approach to language learning in the classroom.
