The language schools do not only offer language courses specifically designed for foreign language teachers to improve their language skills, but also a wide range of innovative teaching methods. Since the Austrian revised school-certificate examination (“Reifeprüfung”) demands the command of different skills, there is a need for new methods and beneficial teaching material.
The course is aimed at familiarizing teachers of foreign languages with the current practices of foreign language teaching in order to improve the quality of their instruction. A further objective of the training is to intensify European integration and establish relationships with other institutions in order to compare and exchange different instruction methods on a trans-national level.
The course familiarises participants with advanced practices and techniques of language instruction. Through practical examples, the training introduces new methods.
For various reasons, participating in this training is relevant to us. We hope to gain knowledge of the newest teaching methods so as to offer our students classes with a great degree of variety and a special focus on current affairs while using authentic and innovative material. In the long run it will be our students who will benefit from the skills that we want to gain during this training.
Furthermore, we will also take this opportunity to pass the newest methods on to our teacher colleagues in Austria.
We hope that our participation in this training will contribute to the image of our international school, especially in the context of the International Baccalaureate that is offered. The internationally trained teachers' competences could be offered at our school, too.
Furthermore, we will take the opportunity to pass the newest methods on to our teacher colleagues in Austria, who will benefit from our training, too.
Teacher, who take part in trainings regularly, not only contribute to the quality development of a school , but also to an improvement of the school's image.
