Advanced Language Culture

Just came back from two amazing weeks in London where I attended the course Advanced Language and Culture at Lexical Lab! I can't thank Hugh Dellar and Andrew Walkley enough for this enriching experience. Since my first e-mail asking for some more information I could feel all the dedication they were putting through to run the course successfully. And the result couldn't have been any better. As teachers from different countries, we had the opportunity to go deeper into topics that we sometimes get in touch with, but are not quite sure we understand 100%. Housing in the UK, Family, Youth, Women's Issues, Literature and Brexit are just some of the topics we discussed. Moreover, we had the chance to improve our knowledge on the language by learning new vocabulary, collocations and idioms with lots of speaking and exchanging of ideas. Everything was harmonically intertwined - language, culture, our own experiences. Finally, I can't forget to mention our outings with the teachers, which were related to the topics discussed in class. Excellent opportunity to get to know London beyond Big Ben and go to places we don't normally go when on holidays. To sum up, highly recommended course with great teachers! Definitely adds to broaden our horizons.

Teaching lexically course

I'd like to say many thanks to Hugh Dellar and Andrew Walkley for such an amazing course I've completed recently in Lexical Lab summer school in London. From the very first day I applied for the course they kept in touch and were really helpful replying promptly to everything that worried me, as well as recommended a perfect place to stay.
I found the course really practical and full of helpful tips. It covered all the aspects of teaching English and we also had a chance to try and come up with our own ideas of implementing the tips right in the class which then were discussed and after that our teachers shared possible options of working with listening, reading or whatever we were talking about with us. What's more, we could experience how it works as we were often suggested to do the activities with each other. I'm really looking forward to the new academic year to implement the knowledge I got at my classes. I must admit the course was absolutely inspiring and I took a fresh look at teaching.
As for the social and cultural events during the course I didn't expect them be so fascinating. I discovered absolutely different London which I probably wouldn't be able do on my own. And it was much more fun with the classmates :)
I would definitely recommed the course and the school to everyone both teachers and those who want to improve their language. I wish I could come again for the English Boost course one day. Hope to be able to cope with that dreadful jetlag next time, but it was absolutely worth it :)

An unforgettable and unique experience!

After attending Advanced Language and Culture with Lexical Lab in London I’m 100% sure it was the right decision to choose a course run by this pariticular institution. Andrew and Hugh know their job and provide learners with the highest quality of teaching. During the course we all had a chance to share and compare our own experiences with people from other corners of the world. The course enabled us to broaden our horizons by touching upon up-to -date topics such as Family in the UK, Immigration, Brexit, Education and Youth, Class Division and many, many others. We were provided with a huge array of contemporary phrases as well as a handful of ideas on how to revise vocabulary in our own classrooms. We also had a unique opportunity to discover London from another angle by visiting places such as Hampstead Heath, Brixton, Shoreditch, which are not to be found in a typical guidebook. During our unforgettable field trips Andrew and Hugh revealed a lot of details and peculiarities concerning the spots we were sightseeing and encouraged us to try cuisines from many different parts of the world, e.g. Jamaican patties or Turkish Gozleme . Andrew and Hugh’s friendly and tolerant attitude towards the group created a special atmosphere which fostered learning and encouraged everyone to express their opinions freely. What was truly unique was that our tutors gave us a sense of influence on the course content thanks to the pre-course questionnaire we’d filled in. Frequent and varied revisions as well as additional materials and sources provided on a padlet have made the experience even more memorable. Thank you, Andrew and Hugh, for creating such a brilliant course!

London Summer Course \"Teaching Lexically\"

A couple of days ago I returned from London where I took the course “Teaching Lexically” by Hugh Dellar and Andrew Walkley – the authors of really great coursebook “Outcomes”. It was really unforgettable experience for me – two weeks of useful and helpful information which I’m sure will help me to become a better teacher, amazing leacturers – Hugh Dellar and Andrew Walkley - who told us a lot of interesting things and always patiently answered all our endless questions, communication with colleagues and sharing our experience. Another really magnificent thing was visiting lots of places in London. If you think they were the most famous Tower, Buckingham Palace or Westminster Abbey, you are mistaken. Hugh and Andrew showed us lots of places which I would never see myself just because I would probably never think about visiting them – just real life of the great city, not only its beauty and glory. The only disappointment is that I’m not able to visit all the courses at once. I would definitely like to visit “English Boost”, “Better Testing and Assessment” and “Advanced Language and Culture”, so I still have a lot to do in London. Do not hesitate, these courses are really worth visiting.

I recently completed a new course Teaching Lexically, run by LexicalLab in London.
I want to express my deep gratitude to Hugh Dellar and Andrew Walkly. You are amazing tutors! Knowledgeable, enthusiastic and dedicated, a good example to follow.
The very course was well-structured, full of practical tasks and useful inputs. We had sessions on teaching all skills and systems with lexical approach. I found lots of interesting and handy tips which I could implement in my teaching style, I would say, in my teaching lexically style
An integral part of our course was a cultural programme, carefully tailored by our tutors. We had wonderful trips to Greenwich, Richmond, Kew Gardens, Brixton and other beautiful places. Like professional guides, Hugh and Andrew helped us feel the atmosphere, dive deeper into the history.
Overall, I really enjoyed having this experience, which I think every teacher should go through. Once again, thank you, my dear teachers, for unforgettable two weeks! Hope to see you again next year!
