The stay in the country will enhance expression, pronounciation and comprehension of the language, aswell as an authentic access to the culture and the people of the UK* In the area of curriculum and organisation: * In the field of European dimension:Through a lively communication and cooperation with international partners, we can support the intercultural competence of our teachers. We will implement international acitivties that are especially crucial in the development of our new senior classes, where the focus is on enhancing and enabling 'open-mindedness' for our students in many different areas.* In the area of drama techniques and creative language teaching:The participant will acquire a comprehensive variety of engaging and productive activities that are designed to complement language learning by encouraging the English language students with a real desire to listen, speak and write fluently, actively and creatively.NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS: 1IMPLEMENTATION AND EVALUATION:The trainig course is conducted by a leading teacher training TEFL organisation and language training provider.Qualified trainers ensure the achievement of the above listed study aims. Sustainable quality assurance and evaluation after the training course are an integrated part of the project.SUSTAINABILITY AND TRANSFER OF KNOWLEDGE The participant will use his knowledge, skills and abilities in the classroom.
