Our Teaching Team
All our ESE teachers are qualified and experienced. They are friendly, supportive and will help you improve your level of English and reach your language learning objectives. All your lessons are pitched at the right language level for you.
Our TeachersESE teachers are native-level speakers who are adept at helping you define and achieve your learning objectives. Every year our teachers participate in teacher training courses as part of their Continuing Professional Development (CPD) which ensures that ESE teachers are always up-to-date with new teaching trends and technology including the use of interactive whiteboards and keeping up with all latest developments in teaching English as a foreign language.
Continuing Professional Development
As part of the ESE Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programme, teachers follow Teacher Training courses and participate in workshops in a range of EFL teaching areas. Recently, for example, teachers followed intensive sessions on how to use Interactive Whiteboards effectively to bring the real world into the classroom and make lessons more engaging. The Continuous Professional Development programme ensures that our teaching is of the highest standard across all courses.
ESE Methodology places you at the heart of your learning
As an ESE learner of English, you are an active participant in your learning process. Our courses are student-centred and are designed to equip you with the linguistic tools necessary for you to develop your skills holistically. This means that you develop all your core language skills equally: listening, speaking, reading and writing.
To maximise your learning opportunities, you are exposed to language in use in natural and authentic contexts and given activities with real communicative value to carry out in small groups or pairs. This, followed by personalised feedback, remedial and further practice opportunities by our qualified and experienced teachers, is the key to your success.
