Teachers Teach

A peer-learning community for language teachers
We do lots of things for teachers, but here's the gist of what you can do here:

1. Learn English.
We have groups for teachers only, starting with B1 up to C1.
We also have a unique option of Teachers Teach Teachers groups - where participants swap in teaching each other. This is for C1-C2 English speakers.

2. Learn how to teach adults Lexically.
We've just started Module 1 of our course.

3. Meet amazing teachers.
We have speaking clubs and networking events, special interest groups where teachers discuss books, games, films, you name it!

If you're looking for a space where you can take care of your English, professional development, and find a supportive community of colleagues, you're in the right place!

Our website is not the best reflection of our work, we're currently updating it, so the best way to choose the programme you need is to watch the video below.

    This project is a great opportunity to become a part of Russian ELT community, to work on your language and teaching skills, to explore your CPD needs and to continuously grow both professionally and personally. Happy to be a part of this community!

    I see how beneficial and supportive the TTT community is. Apart from language classes themselves, there are great methodology webinars, we pick up tiny teaching tips from each other and it's really motivating to be among devoted professionals.

    What have I gained as a TTT participant? Structured CPD, all in one place, with a great variety and thought. I've found a wonderful community of co-teachers. I've gained much-needed experience in teaching advanced level students online. I've learned a lot of online tools. Consider it a great investment of your time and money! You get a lot of things in one package. And if you are ready to learn and change, you will find ample opportunities for that here.

    Being a teacher doesn't mean knowing everything but knowing how to involve your students and together find the answer. Teachers are just people and they study the same way as others. I've chosen TTT because I need people thinking alike from the same field of my interest to communicate with and develop in the language. Teaching for me means not only teaching others but learning myself. TTT is a great community to find answers to your questions, to learn yourself and gain your professional goals.

    TTT is the best place for development and practice language skills. I think that here I can get acquainted with my colleagues. I will be teacher - of - the- month for the first time on June. Two weeks ago I was very nervous and excited, but after our workshop I was really very calm and concentrated. I am trying to plan my future lessons. I hope that they'll be interesting for my group.

    I have chosen TTT because I was looking for a community of like-minded people as I work mostly on my own. Now I've become more confident about my teaching, improved my English and found a group of teachers who became my friends.

    I learned to stay calm in any situation during the lesson being the TOM (teacher of the month), observed a lot of colleagues conducting their lessons and learned to appreciate it. I'd recommend to join Teachers Teach Teachers. Experience is the most precious thing. Besides, when you feel you're not alone, when you can discuss your ideas and share your worries, it feels great!
