English for Educators

English for Educators – ‘Enseignment DNL’ – CLIL

Our English for Educators course is aimed at staff from educational institutions who wish to improve their general English or develop their skills for using English in an educational context. It is eligible for Erasmus funding. 

This course is broadly aimed at a B2 level. It can be combined with the English for Intercultural Communication course the following week. 

The twenty-five hour programme runs over five days in the UNESCO world heritage city of Bath, UK in a comfortable venue that provides wifi and free refreshments. 

The main course outcomes are to:

  • improve your confidence in speaking in English
  • increase your accuracy in spoken and written communication
  • develop your skills in understanding spoken English
  • revise your understanding of the English grammar and sound systems
  • develop your ability to use English for educational purposes

Programme 

Participants are invited to contribute at least one hour to the programme; for example by teaching a subject lesson or leading another type of activity. We like to conduct a thorough needs analysis via questionnaire followed up by a phone discussion. Course participants are provided with a full programme shortly before the course. All general course materials are provided.
