Have you completed your TEFL course and you are now feeling that you want a bit more hands-on experience, but still with some supervision? Do you want to improve your techniques or learn new ones, in a specialized area? Or, are you simply feeling stuck with the activities you have been using? If you have answered “yes” to any of these questions, you may be interested in either the specialty courses run by International TEFL Academy or one of the workshops that we run, here in Barcelona.
As part of our efforts to help ITA alumni enhance their teaching skills and techniques, we have been working with different local academies in Barcelona in order to offer hands-on workshops, that may lead to future jobs in these areas (there is even the possibility to obtain work with the academies we collaborate with!).
At the end of last term, two of our ITA Barcelona trainers (Chris Buffey-organizer and Tom Flaherty- presenter from the Universitat de Barcelona) ran a successful workshop on Task-based learning, which we are planning to follow-up sometime this term. So, please stay tuned, if you would be interested in that! The focus was on how to use tasks in the sector of Business English. Our next workshop will be focusing on teaching young learners. We have teamed up with a local language academy (Kids Speak English) that has just recently expanded its premises in order to meet the high demand of the neighborhood kids! The school offer lots of fun activities for kids to learn in a motivating and supportive environment.
The objective or the workshop would be to learn how to create and adapt materials for different age groups, and to put these ideas into practice with real- life students!
Furthermore, you would get feedback on your teaching and you will receive a certificate at the end of the course, as well.
