Teacher Training - Extensive

Course details

Course design: Based on our popular and proven methodology, of course,  with lots of love and experience.

For this new format, we cooperate with our parent-institute, TTI (Teacher Training Institute) DaF in Freiburg. Beside a curriculum which contains a lot of Insula material, we've developed a different format: The Teacher Training Cologne is part-time, twice a week in the evenings (teaching practice) + Saturdays (Grammar and Methodology). Observation in our running courses are also part of the training.

Duration: 4 months

Course structure:

  • Pre-course: Language Analysis (4 weeks)
  • Main course: Methodology and teaching practice (approx. 12 weeks)

Lesson times:

  • Pre-course: two evenings per week 18.30- 20.30h + 2 Saturdays 10.00-14.30h
  • Main course: Saturdays, 10:00 - 14:30h, two evenings per week 18:00-21:30h
