Learn to teach English on LSI Brighton’s CELTA Course

Thursday, January 18th, 2018

Would you like to learn to teach English?  Throughout January, LSI Brighton has been running it’s popular CELTA  teacher training programme. The course focuses on the skills needed to become a successful English language teacher. Find out more about the course here.

It seems however that some of our newly trained teachers have plans which go beyond the usual class teaching. Once they have completed their CELTA course, five students plan to use their new skills in a very different way. Instead of basing themselves in the classroom,  they will be leading adventure and activities holidays for international students. They work for the PGL organisation which specialises in outdoor activities for young people.  PGL has used LSI for a number of years to train its staff . The company offers  English Language programmes which combine English courses with Orienteering, Archery, Climbing and Raft Building. It would be true to say therefore that the ability to teach English is a skill that can be used to support many many other skills!
