In addition to the experience of living and working abroad, you will also improve your own language skills and inspire and motivate your students.  

Your role will be to improve your students confidence in communicating in English and help classes to become more interactive and fun by discussing contemporary aspects of youth culture in the UK. You will do this by planning activities and games and using photos, travel guides and maps from the UK as well as texts from newspapers, magazines and the internet. The British Council has dedicated websites to support you with your role from lesson plans to classroom management for all ages.
