In order for you to experience the communicative approach to language teaching from the perspective of the learner, the TEFL course includes the opportunity to participate in foreign language lessons. This is particularly valuable if you don't have any recent classroom experience of foreign language learning. As most people taking our TEFL course are native speakers of English, the language taught is usually Greek, but this can be adapted according to the needs of each group. In the example below, the language taught is Welsh.
