Let us share with you our ideas, insights and activities, drawn from our student-centred approach to teaching. You'll explore ways to engage and motivate your learners, putting the emphasis on the student and reducing teacher focus in the classroom.
We'll also look at how to maximise opportunities to develop pronunciation, reading and listening skills, as well as using drama as an engaging tool for speaking practice. Whether you're coming independently, or with a group of students at our Southampton Junior Centre next door, this is the perfect opportunity to combine leisure with training.
