Become a part of our learning family.

Everyone at WELC works towards a single goal-helping you make the most of your learning experience. From host families to activity leaders, we support and develop all of our team to make sure you succeed.
All our teachers have a primary degree, an internationally recognised TEFL qualification, years of experience and a gift for bringing out the best in their students. Our teachers always focus classes on the skills which students need to develop (reading, listening, writing, speaking), using a wide variety of academic (Books/CD’s/DVD’s) and authentic materials (internet, newspapers, documentaries, movies) and using technology and blended learning to help you take control or your learning journey.
Teaching methods include communicative practice exercises such as role-plays, dialogues, debates, discussion groups and presentations.

Staff Thoughts

‘Our job is to create a place where learners feel comfortable and confident. The best learning takes place when learners know that it’s ok to make mistakes, when they can get regular feedback and when they are supported in taking control of their own learning. Every student is different and we know that we have to teach and support each of our learners by recognising these differences.’
