Cactus teachers are carefully assessed and selected by our Academic Team. All of our teachers are native speaking or bilingual (minimum C2 level CEFR) with the appropriate language teaching/literature/linguistic qualifications for their language and significant experience of teaching languages to groups of adults.
All of our teachers complete a ‘Pre-Interview Task’ and an interview with our Academic Director (TESOLCert, DELTA, BA, MA, DipELTMan qualified). Our recruitment process assesses not only the teaching techniques, lesson planning, goals setting and classroom management skills that the teacher is able to deliver but also that they employ the communicative approach in their classes and are able to clarify meaning and correct errors in a student-centred and effective way, whilst making the lessons engaging and fun.
During your course you will be able to message your teacher directly through MyCactus, our online platform for evening language students.
Cactus Language teachers will not only help you learn a language but also give you an insight into the culture of the language you are learning. See our teacher profiles below to meet some of the inspiring teachers who teach our online, 10-week and 5-week adult evening courses across the UK.
