Course overview:
This course is aimed at professionals, who would like to become more versatile teachers who are as confident teaching a group of absolute beginners as working with advanced students. In the course you will become more aware of how to
• support your starters and make sure they do not give up learning
• give instructions in English if your students cannot speak English yet
• train your students to become effective learners
• deal with students who are reluctant to use complex structures
• challenge those who have been studying for a while

Istanbul is a major city in Turkey that straddles Europe and Asia across the Bosphorus Strait. Its Old City reflects cultural influences of the many empires that once ruled here. In the Sultanahmet district, the open-air, Roman-era Hippodrome was for centuries the site of chariot races, and Egyptian obelisks also remain. The iconic Byzantine Hagia Sophia features a soaring 6th-century dome and rare Christian mosaics.
