Having taught a variety of students from beginner level young learners to advanced level adults and also observed other teachers teaching these levels, I find that one of the key elements of success is a teacherˇ¦s ability to engage their students in the target language in a meaningful way. This course will give you the tools to do that at a variety of levels and help you to find the experience of teaching English pleasurable and rewarding. English teaching can be very rewarding and lots of fun if teachers know how to plan and structure their lessons in a manner that is geared towards engagement and success.
