We were delighted to host a group of 36 Chilean English and Subject teachers via a programme in partnership with the British Council. They forfeited the sunshine of South America to spend 5 weeks with us in January and February. They took part in sessions on CLIL and ELT methodology and Language and Culture. They also visited local primary and secondary schools to compare educational settings in Chile and the UK. As well as their social programme which included a ceilidh, a pub quiz, a football match at the Norwich City FC stadium and a trip to London, some of the participants also took the opportunity to visit various cities in the UK and even Europe. They certainly made the most of their time here.
The teachers said….
Our teachers were highly-qualified in different areas of language teaching and learning.
It has been a totally successful professional and personal experience.
NILE has gone well above my expectations, the staff and teachers are spectacular, the class material was the best.
I have grown as a person and as a teacher because of this course.
If I had the chance to do it again, I’d do it definitely.
