Teacher Training in Sydney, Australia
"For me, the DELTA was one of the most stimulating courses I have ever taken. It made me scrutinise everything I knew about teaching EFL, and taught me so much more. Part of my job as Head Teacher involves giving staff development workshops and observing teachers in class. The DELTA course I took in Sydney has helped me so much in these aspects of my job."
