Sorry, I missed this.
Yes that is exactly what I was referring to.
My brother used to teach there (PGCE- mod languages, taught Spanish, seemed very happy there, only left for a complete change of career direction). I believe that all their teachers/lecturers are properly accredited (although you should be able to determine this yourself with a little enquiry of course). I’ve also met several students from there (from TW and Japan) who had gone to pursue further English study and seemed very comfortable conversing in English.
Might be worth looking into. After all, there could be nothing worse than paying up at some Language centre and getting taught by a ‘trainee’ getting ready to go and teach abroad, yet paying full whack for what may or may not turn out to be a worthwhile course, depending on the teacher’s ability/experience. Like I said in my first post my friend had no formal teacher training and was just out of Uni. Places like Callan rely on the fact that their method is so prescribed that anyone with an ounce of common sense can teach the lessons. All fine and well, but as I said earlier I doubt that it’s much use beyond the beginner level.
