How about improving your skills in identifying and adapting material to create original learning resources?  Or putting together on-point lesson plans and appropriate testing material?

This comprehensive course for ESL trainers capitalises on my many years' experience as a language trainer, distilling knowledge I wish I'd had in the early days of my teaching career.

Practical tips and resources? This course has got it.

Foundation skills? This course covers it. And the course constantly grows with you.

With a better understanding of what English is and how we can effectively teach it, we help our students express themselves accurately and effectively.

Motivation and Language Learning - Strategies
English as a global language, and why trained & terrific ESL trainers are needed

Working in the Classroom - Who, What, and Why
How do we select what language to present, and how do we actually present it? This section focuses on practical skills, and gives you a lot of hands-on work!
In focus: The Teacher and the Learner
Different learners have different learning styles and different needs-  When we understand these styles and needs, we frame more effective lessons and create a more motivating learning environment. Let's explore this in greater detail together.  Please keep an eye out for the tasks at the end of this section.
