Our Courses

Teacher Training

At Odyssey Language Academy, we know that the teachers must continuously learn and develop as much as the students. We offer to all our teachers many in-house training sessions to improve all areas of teaching.

We wish to be able to offer this training to the rest of the world too. So if you are a school with teachers, why not help them develop too.
