English Courses for Overseas Teachers

LSI Portsmouth offers two types of English training courses for non-native Secondary School teachers : Methodology and Language and CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning).  These courses are suitable for non-native secondary school teachers of learners aged 11-16+ and for those who are converting to teaching in English and for teachers who teach their subjects in English.
