English as a Foreign Language Course
New in 2018
We are delighted to welcome back Louise Mitchell as the teacher on this new course which was started in 2018. The course is ideal for participants wishing to become more fluent in the English language. Every year we have many pianists who come to study on the summer school from all corners of the world. This course will enable those who lack confidence in speaking English to study with an experienced TEFL teacher from the university of Salford.
One young pianist from 2018 wrote after the course to say
‘Please tell Ms Mitchell that she is the best English teacher I have ever had!’
You will have the opportunity to build up confidence in using the language in everyday situations. We will work on pronunciation, covering all the sounds of English. From there, the course content will focus on speaking and listening in situations such as meeting people, giving and receiving personal information, shopping, buying tickets and using public transport. There will also be input on basic grammar and vocabulary, and all learning will be consolidated with practical and interactive exercises.
