Basic Course

This course gives you a jump start into a more dynamic and brain compatible approach to language learning. Dynamic language learning has its foundation in TPRS (Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling) and a highly effective combination of Comprehensible Input based techniques. The course prepares you to start using key skills of TPRS and TCI (Teaching with Comprehensible Input) in your own classroom.


In each 6-hour course day, new material is presented in a brain-friendly manner through a variety of formats: presentation, individual reflection, skill-building activities, sharing with a partner, demonstration, group discussion, small group practice, peer coaching, and lesson planning.


You will learn:

  • How to use the target language in your classroom almost 100%

  • How to make everything you say in the target language totally comprehensible for your students

  • How to automise new language structures in a dynamic and creative way

  • How to use visual and dynamic cues to support meaning and enhance comprehension

  • How to co-design stories and conversations with your students


You will receive:

  • Interesting articles with scientific support and background information

  • Links to videos that will help you master your new teaching skills

  • A complete lesson plan for your first 10 classes, so that you can start teaching with CI in an easy, stressless manner

  • Coffee, tea, snacks and lovely lunches

  • A Basic Course Certificate
