In January, we also had the pleasure of welcoming a group of ELT teachers from the Cultura Inglesa language institute in Brazil for a one-week methodology course. They took part in sessions on topics such as current trends in ELT, contemporary English, evidence-based teaching, using authentic texts, critical thinking and multi-sensory learning.
They also enjoyed a busy social programme with a drink in a typical English pub, a trip to the local arts cinema and a farewell afternoon tea.
In the words of the teachers...
I benefited a lot from all sessions and felt at home in NILE.
I gained a fresh perspective on teaching and language development.
All the workshops exceeded my expectations.. All the teachers were kind, helpful and supportive.
