Talking to People (C1, C2): A Language and Culture course for Teachers – Dublin, Ireland

Description

Location: Dublin, Ireland

Course aimed at teachers who wish to improve their knowledge of English (C1, C2) through the understanding of key cultural aspects of Ireland as a unique learning context.

The methodology of this course is an effective combination of workshops, seminars, project-based learning, and field projects that will help participants develop their communicative competence and explore beyond the language. Observing culture, history, and its people creates learning, motivation, and natural curiosity that invite communication.

Areas of study such as society, literature, art, traditions, history, geography, cinema, etc., will help participants to deepen their knowledge of Ireland in a multicultural European environment. Field projects related to places of archaeological, artistic, and historical interest will intensify the cultural experience of the participants. All this will affect the quality of a more informed teaching. In addition, the course offers an excellent opportunity for participants to find partners for future collaboration.

Participants must be teachers with a level of English corresponding to C1 or C2 in the Common European Framework (CEFR).
