Overseas English Language Teachers Visit Dunfermline

An acclaimed training organisation for overseas English language teachers has confirmed Dunfermline as their Scottish learning centre.

International Study Programmes (ISP) specialises in courses for English teachers whose first language is not English, as well as holiday language courses and tailor-made educational visits to Britain.

Dunfermline MSP Bill Walker, who recently greeted another group of teachers arriving in the city, commented:

“I welcome this acknowledgment of Dunfermline as a centre for teaching and cultural awareness. ISP recognises that our city — Scotland’s ancient capital — is steeped in history in its own right, and is also excellently situated for exploring Fife, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

“ISP’s Scottish organiser, Win Scott, does a thoroughly commendable job. She is dedicated to making these visits a success, so the teachers return home with happy memories of Dunfermline and, of course, with improved language skills and cultural awareness.

“Good luck to Win and ISP with this year’s programmes.”

Approximately 200 teachers will visit Dunfermline this summer and most will stay with local families. The teachers will attend courses held in two of Dunfermline’s most historic buildings: Carnegie Library and Abbot House.

They will receive tuition on teaching practice, visit schools, and hear talks on Scottish history, education and literature, as well as enjoying guided walks in Dunfermline, Edinburgh and Glasgow, with optional trips to Culross, Loch Katrine and the Trossachs.
