Host TEFL Teacher
Prior experience of working, and living, as an English seafarer for P&O Cruises (early 1990s) with an international crew, and with the responsibility for ‘on-the-job’ training for new recruits from the Philippines: provided a good insight into the early principals and ethos of a practical teaching approach now commonly know as TELF. Training new Princess Cruises recruits in wine service and stock control technology, whilst teaching them English, was dynamic with effective results. Seafarer safety duties such as lifeboat drills with 75 [multi-national] crew members, as a lifeboat/raft supervisor, was another early TEFL experience as a P&O seafarer working with Italian, Indian, Chinese and Philippine nationals, for instance. A few years later (1994) as a live-in English Tutor for a private Turkish family. This experience reinforced the practical implementation of the TEFL approach in both formal and informal situations.
Learn Sweet Learn students – children, young people and adults – now benefit from these early experiences with personalised ’1-2-1′ immersion designed TEFL courses. General English and Business English immersion courses including Cambridge English exam preparation options are provided.
Learn Sweet Learn also provides homestay accommodation for students via Hosts International and Academic Guardians with the additional benefit of facilitating their occasional cultural visits to enrich their experience as international visitors, i.e. Birmingham/West Midlands cultural visits.
