English for Africa
Teacher training for today's Africa
Our Vision for Africa
English from Africa, English for Africa
Despite its historical origins, English is no longer an English language; it is an international language, the world's current, and most likely future lingua franca. English now comes from those who speak it all around the world, and it will come increasingly from Africa as well. By training Africa’s teachers to be effective teachers of English as a second or foreign language, English for Africa aims to help leverage the language into a tool for Africa's future prosperity and solidarity.
From Africa to Africa
African nations are, generally speaking, closer to other African nations, and that geographic proximity is a resource for its people. Coordination is key for Africa’s future, and coordination requires communication. It is in this essential area that English for Africa can help to play a role.
Pre-service English Teachers
For pre-service teachers, or teachers who want a firmer grounding in communicative techniques and an internationally recognized certificate, EfA offers the Cambridge CELTA course.
For in-service teachers and institutions, we offer a comprehensive list of courses and workshops, as well as in-house training services tailored to your teachers' needs. For flexible training needs, we also offer distance training solutions using teacher-filmed lessons for observations and forum discussion-based feedback.
If you're not sure which courses are most suitable for your teachers, EfA will conduct a needs analysis to help you find out.
A CELTA course for Africa
We believe that the student-centered, communicative approach to teaching endorsed by Cambridge English is extremely well-suited to Moroccan culture, which highly values group interactions, and places a premium on team work as well as individual self-expression. This is why English for Africa has placed the CELTA course at the center of its course offering.
Over twenty-five years in the teaching and training classroom have enabled us to provide numerous other courses as well. In addition to the courses below, you'll find a complete list and course descriptions on our Courses and Workshops page.
