The Online Academy: Teaching English as a Foreign Language

Today English is an international language and used for global communication. In all forms of international exchange people are expected to be proficient in speaking and writing in English. Moreover, despite the advancement in digital translations we still need to develop good listening and reading skills in English.

English foreign language teachers are expected to give their students high quality teaching in English as a foreign language using high level technology combined with a sound theoretical framework for language acquisition with the pedagogy for teaching languages.
