Job Description
Twin Group is an award-winning provider of education, travel, work experience, accommodation, and employment services.  We offer a diverse number of life-enhancing services to our clients and every member of our team is essential in achieving this.

EFL teachers teach English as a foreign language using the communicative method and project work. They enable students to practice and improve the four basic language skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing: with a focus on real-life communication. Grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, and discourse all play an important part in the course.  In all lessons, students are encouraged to communicate with each other using the target structures and vocabulary.
