In April, the Summer Boarding Courses academic team ventured to Scotland to attend the annual IATEFL (International Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language) conference in a very windy Glasgow. The four-day event consisted of ELT seminars, workshops and forums, which focused on maximising students’ learning experience through new and innovative methods. The conference also provided our team with an opportunity to network with some of the industry’s most highly acclaimed authors and English language experts, and become involved in exciting new projects which are developing within the English Language Teaching community.
We have since been working on many areas of our summer courses to create an even more holistic and efficient learning environment. We have injected our syllabus with a host of creative weekly themes and expanded our expertise in the both the learning and welfare support we provide our students during their time with us. In addition, we’re currently in the process of establishing an exciting new project, which will enlist volunteers to deliver classes to refugees and some of the most deprived young people across the world. This is something which we wholeheartedly feel reflects our passion for reaching out to all corners of the globe and builds bridges for the next generations of the international community.
A very action-packed few days!
