The course was led by NILE Trainers Lindsay Warwick and Tony Prince, and coordinated from the Russian side by IELTS specialist Elena Pozhidaeva and focused on analysing the key features which lead to success in the IELTS exam, and ways to help learners' realise their full potential in the Speaking, Writing, Listening and Reading papers. The course resources included many ready-made materials to be implemented in the teachers' own classes, as well as a well-received mix of theory and practice in the areas of language development and exam strategies.
Feedback from the participants included:
"It was my first time in the UK and I'm completely satisfied with what I got here. I enjoyed every minute."
" All my needs and expectations were met."
"The sources introduced are going to be very helpful in my teaching career."
Course coordinator Tony Prince said:
"The group brought their considerable experience of IELTS to NILE, and developed wonderfully from there with the help of Lindsay Warwick, who is such an experienced IELTS teacher-trainer and writer."
