For English at Home we do not have a set syllabus or teaching method we enforce as our learners’ needs and abilities are extremely varied. We also like to give our teachers the freedom to use the style of teaching that works best for them and their learner.

However, if you are interested in reading a little more on different teaching approaches there are a number of resources below. These will hopefully expand your knowledge as well as giving you new ideas to try.
