Your Course Director and Lead Trainer
This is My Story
My name is Dylan Gates and I have been working in English language teaching since 1996. As well as Spain, I have also trained and taught in Latin America and the UK.
After getting my initial TEFL certificate, I worked with Young Learners, Teenagers and Adults in several language schools, teaching General English, Business English and Exam Preparation classes.
In 2004, I completed an advanced teaching qualification known as the Diploma DELTA. This enabled me to get into academic management and I spent several years working as the Director of Studies at a prestigious English language school in central London.
After completing an MA in Applied Linguistics and English Language Teaching from King’s College in London, I returned to Spain to work as the Lead Teacher Trainer on a TEFL course. I had found my passion.
I love training people to teach English and equipping them with the skills and the confidence to deliver engaging lessons. Since then, I have devoted most of my time to designing and running teacher training courses in Spain and the UK.
I won an award from the British Council for his blog on using dice in the English language classroom.
