The International House Madrid DELTA Bridging course has been designed to prepare experienced teachers and bring them to the entry point for the Cambridge DELTA the following academic year.
It is also for teachers who feel they would benefit by taking a year to re-examine the practices and principles which they were introduced to on their pre-service course and reflect on how they have developed these.
It has been written by International House Madrid and specifically designed to improve your teaching ability and give you the confidence to undertake DELTA the following year.
The focus of the course is to lift your current teaching ability to a safe entry point for DELTA. There will be methodology, but the emphasis is on teaching skills. This is a very practical course; we will demonstrate all the procedures and discuss the rationale behind the them.
Candidates from any teaching environment who have at least 2 years’ experience after pre-service training and who have taught a range of learners from beginners to advanced can apply.
