Teaching English as a foreign language. - The TEFL Academy

This course allowed me to understand the difficulties in learning English as a foreign/ second language, as well as to better teach this subject to those who aren’t familiar with English. This course focused on helping others understand English for all levels (B1-C2), in terms of speaking, fluency, comprehension, vocabulary, as well as activities and lesson planning.
