The teacher-training course was designed to impart as much knowledge as possible through usage of teacher’s kits, flash cards, posters, pictures, books and DVDs. Audio CDs offer examples of proper pronunciation.

The course focused on better understating, memorization, understanding and increase confidence for students according to theories on learning language.
