News and events
  A trainer and lecturer discuss the EMI approach

Broadening the EMI offer at Yunnan University

University students in China expect a more international environment during their studies, but many lecturers struggle to use English in the classroom, often lacking the confidence and expertise to teach in an EMI context. Yunnan University is offering more EMI/bilingual classes to students thanks to an extremely successful EMI training course for lecturers.

Read the Yunnan University case study.

  A group of students look at some communicative teaching materials

Empowering Teachers in Southwest China

Guizhou province is a less developed area, with many ethnic minorities, and it was here that the British Council’s Teaching for Success approach was first used in China. Introducing communicative language teaching in an area such as this was a major step forward in the reform of the education system and demonstrates the local government’s commitment to reducing the gap in English teaching with more developed areas.

Find out more about the region and the training.

Broadening ELT Horizons for Thai Master Trainers

After the end of the Regional English Training Centre project Thai Master Trainers (TMTs) are still ensuring the sustainability of the project continuing to support teachers across the country.  To support the TMTs the British Council took a group to this year's IATEFL, where they learnt all about the latest developments in ELT.

Learn more about TMTs and their exciting trip to the UK.
