The approach

At Broadstairs English Centre we offer English courses for teachers employed in primary, secondary and higher education. All methodology is taught through lessons in which teachers take on the role of the student. This makes the training enjoyable and is more effective as teachers experience the benefits of newly-presented ideas. Most of the material we use has been written by our Head of Teacher Training or Director of Studies and you can expect up-to-date texts and a variety of media in the classroom. We focus on modern natural usage and can tailor our course to fit the needs and interests of each group of teachers. What you will take away is a large amount of practical material and ideas to use in your teaching environment. You can also expect us to keep in touch and provide you with links to new ideas and resources after your stay in Broadstairs.

On our English courses for teachers you will:

  • learn new techniques which can be used in your classroom
  • practise natural modern usage
  • read about and discuss current affairs and British culture
  • meet other teachers to share ideas and socialise with
  • refresh existing skills and teaching techniques
