For English Teachers, by English Teachers — this programme is designed for teachers who teach English, or subjects in English, in their home country and wish to focus on improving their English-teaching skills, techniques, grammatical accuracy and productive fluency.

Particularly popular with teachers adopting a CLIL or bilingual teaching approach in their schools, the course combines detailed grammatical and technical work with practical study skills to promote effective language teaching in your home country, both to young learners and adults. Our English for Teachers tutors are all qualified teachers who work, or have worked, in the UK education system and who bring a wealth of teaching experience and knowledge to lessons.

On a home tuition course you learn English at the teacher’s home. The English immersion environment means you become more confident in using English and develop your knowledge of English grammar and vocabulary in a natural context.  When you learn English at the teacher’s house, not only do you benefit from a personalised course, but you also take part in cultural activities and family life.

Using the Homelingua Advanced Learning System we can deliver results and progress much faster than other study methods.
