TELLAL is excited to announce the launch of an IELTS Excellence: TELLAL Partnerships programme with the British Council in the UAE to help further support those who dream of becoming teachers. From 18th December 2019, the British Council will be working directly with TELLAL to provide expert advice and tips on undertaking the ILETS test and, in addition, the new TELLAL Languages Academy will start to offer a specific IELTS prep and English language courses for prospective students.
What is IELTS?
As well as being an official provider for the International English Language Testing System (IELTS), the British Council has been involved in the co-management of this standardised text of English language proficiency since its inception in 1989. Widely considered to be the world’s most popular English language test, the awarding of an IELTS qualification (https://www.ielts.org/ ) is essential for commencement of both local and international teaching qualification programmes. Spread out over reading, writing, speaking and listening, completing the test ensures that participants have a sufficient enough grasp of the language to be able to understand and communicate to the levels necessary for our educational standards.
Promoting languge learning and enhancing the understanding of culture and communication learning a new language can be benfecial, especially when done in pursuit of a new career. This partnership with the British Council and the recent launch of the new Languages Academy underscore how vital TELLAL views communication development and learning, and the steps being taken to support and engage potential and current teachers on this subject. Both Senior Vice President, Dr Linda Rush and Yousef Omar, Head of the TELLAL Languages Academy, attended the official signing of the MOU with the British Council on Wednesday 18th December 2019 and shared their excitement about the benefits this would offer to students moving forward.
“By adding an IELTS prep course to our Languages Academy, we can provide a vital resource for those who might be struggling to ensure they have studied all of the right elements for the test. Learning how to communicate in another language is one thing, but doing it in order to learn in a foreign language is quite another. Our IELTS prep courses will provide expert guidance and support on efficient training and effective methodologies which will help teachers to communicate in their work place as well as advance them in their studies and career path ” said Yousef Omar. His passion was also echoed by Dr Linda Rush, “The diversity of the UAE has always been reflected in the TELLAL student body and therefore we are delighted to be offering more avenues of support within the English language sphere. Partnering with the British Council will only further that agenda and give even more prospective teachers the chance to forge a career in helping future generations grow.”
