The Target Language Classroom

Booking opens on Monday 22 October for The Target Language Classroom – a 4-day intensive training course in teaching communicatively through the target language designed exclusively for teachers of Spanish based in UK secondary schools.  Fly out to Madrid on Sunday 30 June and we’ll get cracking on Monday morning in my language school in the south of the city.

This is a course like no other:

  • Attendance is limited to 8 teachers maximum
  • A 45-minute one-to-one pre-course meeting on Skype to get all the background information on your current teaching situation
  • 2 x 45-minute post-course Skype meetings with you and/or your department a half-term or full term apart to help you with follow-up and troubleshooting
  • 20 hours of methodology input from me, looking in-depth at rationale, practical activities and management
  • 5 hours of Spanish native-speaker contact
  • Sessions aiming specifically at helping you to roll out the approach with your department when you return home
  • A 90-minute meeting with me and one other teacher to work on issues which you want to raise – you set the agenda!
  • Fully detailed course handbook
  • CD of materials
  • Complimentary copy of the All Aboard! All Abroad! DVD methodology series
  • Option to pay a deposit from one year’s budget and the balance from the next.  For those who pay in full in one payment, I’ll send you a complimentary copy of the DVD set Teaching Grammar Through The Target Language: Mission Impossible?
  • Morning coffee (Mon-Thurs), 3-course lunch (Mon-Thurs), Merienda (Mon-Tues), Farewell Dinner (Wed) all included
  • We can arrange accommodation for you in a hotel, hostal, or you can arrange your own (3 different prices apply).

How much would your school expect to pay for 4 days of standard inset in the UK without all of these guarantees that it will succeed?  Download the brochure from – you’ll be very surprised!  This could be the most effective and cost-effective training your department has ever invested in.

Only 8 places are available and reservations are accepted on a strictly first-come, first-served basis.  To secure your place, click here!
