Teaching Italian away from Italy, it can be possible to lose some of your connection with the Italian language and culture. And where can you find inspiration for the classroom? Our Italian language teacher refresher courses offer you the chance to combine an active holiday with career development.
As a language teacher, your skill and enthusiasm makes a huge difference to your students. When they are sitting in your classroom between Maths and Geography, it’s you that has to grab their attention. Of course you support their learning, but more than that, you can inspire them. By renewing your connection with Italy, you can rediscover that all-important bond you have with Italian language and culture. This can only be good for you and good for your students.
Take an Italian teacher refresher course in Italy
Our refresher courses for Italian teachers are offered in partnership with one of Italy’s leading teacher training institution. The courses offer full didactic support and insight into the very latest language teaching methodologies. What’s more, you will get the chance to meet Italian teachers from across Europe and beyond, swap tips and network.
Spending time on the streets of Italy, hearing the everyday chatter of Italian life over a cappuccino isn’t a bad way to brush up your skills either!
