Why You Should Spend Your Summer in Austria

There are many great reasons to visit Austria all year round, but we have compiled a list of five reasons why summer is one of the best times to visit Austria! Where will you be planning your next summer holiday?

Presenting English as a Living Language

One of your main challenges as an EFL teacher is presenting English as a living language. By living language we mean a way of communicating, the doorway to a new culture and a bridge to connect gaps in our understanding of this world we all share. Most students of English will only know English as a dry subject in a textbook. Students may know aspects of English and American pop culture, but may not be able to draw any connections to the language they learn in school. As an EFL teacher, you can really engage your students in their learning by making English useful to their everyday lives as well as a means to achieve greater goals

Can You Improve a School System?

YES! As a Student Teacher you have the opportunity to help children learn English while making meaningful contributions to an entire education system. Student Teachers gain an internationally recognized teaching qualification, the Trinity CertTESOL or Cambridge CELT-P, and over 220 hours of practical teaching experience – But we often hear about the intangible rewards being the most motivating, such as making a difference in the lives of children. Read about the ways becoming a Student Teacher and acting as a cultural ambassador brings value to the local community and works towards the bigger picture.

How to Be a Cultural Ambassador

As an EFL teacher, you often find yourself sharing not only your language with your students, but your background and experiences as well. It is important to know how and why sharing our culture improves our language teaching. Enrich your lessons by offering your students the opportunity to go further in their understanding of English. Follow these five steps and learn how to be a cultural ambassador in the classroom!

Let's take a look!

Participating in a teacher training course at the English Teacher Training College is so much more than earning a TEFL certification. Not only do you have the opportunity to earn an internationally recognized teaching qualification, the Trinity CertTESOL or Cambridge CELT-P, you gain more than 220 hours of practical teaching experience in real Austrian classrooms. While honing your own teaching abilities, you are making a difference in the lives of hundreds of Austrian schoolchildren. In rural areas of Austria, children learn English from a textbook without ever having met a native speaker. You have the possibility to broaden the horizons of your students as you act as a cultural ambassador, sharing your language and culture while learning about theirs. This rewarding experience doesn’t just benefit you and the children, but the entire Austrian school system. The English Teacher Training College offers training for Austrian school teachers where they can learn our fun, active learning teaching methodologies and how to incorporate more English in their classroom. It’s truly a win-win-win situation!
