With an extensive experience of training English teachers over several decades, the Institute offers high-level courses for participants of the 5+1/4+1-year English Teacher Training programme.
Foundation and disciplinary courses help students to achieve a high level of proficiency in English and provide a solid grounding in English linguistics, applied linguistics as well as English speaking literatures and cultures. To promote specialisation in specific areas, a wide range of optional courses are also on offer. In preparation for their future career as teachers of English, participants will learn about both the theory and practice of language learning and teaching through courses such as, for example, ELT methodology, second language acquisition, the mental lexicon, language testing and language technology and the classroom.
