Online-Workshop: English skills for non-native teachers & trainers

Delivering seminars, lectures or teaching English-speaking students when you are not an English native speaker yourself may seem like a daunting challenge. You must be easily understood to lead a course clearly and to hold authority in the seminar room. Work with an experienced native English-speaking trainer and coach to improve your clarity of expression, your accuracy of pronunciation and your spoken communication skills. This one-day workshop will build your confidence and prepare you to be easily understood in the training room, classroom or lecture hall.
