TESOL Taster Course

This four session course gives an insight into work of an English Language teacher.

Next Course Dates will appear here

The aim of these sessions is to give participants an introductory idea of what Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) involves for both learners and teachers; what knowledge and skills an English Language teacher needs and whether it’s something that you would like to do in the future. The sessions will be very practical with demonstrations of techniques and methodologies as well as an opportunity to try out some of the ideas in peer teaching slots.

Please note - there is a certificate for attendance, but the TESOL Taster  is not a qualification for teaching.
