English teacher's Master Class


Mastery can be attained through relentless practice; however, its acquisition can be expedited by leveraging the experience of others. This two-part immersion workshop, facilitated in English by a native-speaking English teacher of long and varied experience, will bring together teachers of English who are looking to take their existing expertise to an even higher level.

The purpose is to tackle any and all areas which might prove challenging in the English-teaching classroom, be it linguistic or pedagogical. The workshops will be participant-driven, augmented by input from the facilitator, and focused on topics of most concern and interest to those taking part. Typical scenarios will be presented and participants will be encouraged to flag their own questions and “issues” in advance, so that the content is highly tailored and relevant to the particular group.

In an environment of mutual support and professional exchange, the objective is to learn from each other as to what works best, elevating each other collectively. No-one is perfect, but we can all be excellent.
