    Join the Directory of Teachers, our list of teachers who are offering classes to help prepare learners for their LAMDA Exams. You can also download our ‘I teach LAMDA Exams’ graphic to display on your marketing collateral plus we have lots of posters, leaflets and other marketing material.

  3. Go forth and teach

    Whatever methods you use, make sure you have fun with your learners to help them stay driven and passionate about learning. Keep checking back to the exam syllabi to ensure your learners really showcase their talents in line with each of the criteria mapped out.
