“I didn’t have formal language qualifications when I applied to become a Spanish teacher. I was so glad I did an SKE course. The online tutorial was really good and our tutor Jim was very supportive. I am still using resources including Rosetta Stone in my teaching now and I will go back to it in half term as I still have access for another year. It was all really easy to set up and there is even a tutorial online to help you set up Blackboard.”

“I did my first degree in French and Spanish and then went to Switzerland and I forgot my Spanish. The SKE course really helped me. When we were having the lectures, our tutor Jim also gave tips on how to teach the subject as well as refreshing our skills. I feel a lot more confident now I’ve done the SKE. I didn’t do a Spanish A level at school, I just learnt it at university so it was good to get a grounding in grammar which I didn’t get previously.”

“I chose to do Spanish SKE because wanted to increase my chances in finding a job. I teach French but I also wanted to refresh my Spanish. I wanted to rebuild my confidence in Spanish and get feedback from a teacher. At first I was a bit scared because it was all online and I thought it would be a bit cold but really it is a warm and friendly atmosphere. Jim, our tutor, really followed up on things from the week before. Students are 100% involved in the lesson. I was really surprised about how well it worked online.”
