You bring the subject knowledge and we support the language and intercultural competence so that you and your students can have the best possible communication.

  • You choose the topic and we will be happy to help guide you individually or in a small group
  • We can help you practice scenarios such as giving lectures, fielding difficult questions, dealing with controversy, clearing up misunderstandings, and a variety of other topics
  • We will be happy to help you adapt* your teaching materials (examinations, slides, worksheets) to an international English-speaking audience
  • You could also invite us to your class to help gauge whether a particular area needs work

Are you currently teaching in English? Would you like input in how to increase your English vocabulary in your area of expertise? Do you have questions about how to deal with Cultural differences between your students?

Would you like to feel more comfortable teaching in English?
