Words from Teachers
“I truly love my job at Helen Doron, and I feel I can be really creative and crazy with them! I love thinking of new ideas for props and games, and that’s what Helen Doron is all about: making it fun and interesting for the kids, and making the most of our creative selves.”
„I would very much like to thank Helen Doron teachers for teaching me English. They gave me a firm base in English. They showed me how cool English is and how far you can go with it.“
Marcin Parafiniuk, former student from Poland

Words from Teachers
“I was and still am happy to be part of the Helen Doron magic. If a year ago somebody told me that I would run my own Helen Doron English classes in a little, high-mountain town of about 6,000 citizens, I probably would not have believed it.”
„It really helped my self-confidence. My teacher was a very nice person. I very much liked to talk to him as a person, not only as an English teacher.“
It’s no coincidence that our teachers are the best in the industry.
We take their training VERY seriously.
Teacher training courses are conducted much like the Helen Doron English classes. They are fun, held in small groups in a responsive and engaging environment, and are designed to expand trainees’ joy in teaching.
Candidates can choose to become Helen Doron Early English (HDEE) teachers or Helen Doron Teen English (HDTE) teachers, depending on their preferences and previous teaching experience. For teachers who have successfully completed the full five-day HDEE course, a short two-day seminar focusing on HDTE is available.
Length of Courses
The HDEE and HDTE Teacher training courses are each five-days. Each one is divided into 2 stages. First is a two-day introduction and evaluation. Candidates have a chance to take a closer look at the materials and methodology while trainers evaluate participants. After day two, suitable candidates advance to the second stage, which includes and in depth understanding of the methodology, practical demonstrations, and written assignments.
All Helen Doron Early English teacher trainers are professionals with proven competency and years of experience teaching the unique Helen Doron English method to new teachers.
Trainees must complete the course requirements in order to graduate. In addition to the course participation hours, a minimum of one hour prep time is required each evening outside of class to prepare for the next days’ lesson. A 2- 3 page essay is also required to complete the course. Candidates must pass practical demonstrations and submit an essay in order to graduate.
What graduates take home
All graduating teachers receive teaching kits, including books and CDs; teacher guides, flashcards and other teaching aids; promotional tools such as press files and media kits; and practical information on running a self-employed business. Most importantly, graduates receive their Helen Doron English Teacher Diploma which enables them to teach at over 700 Helen Doron English Learning Centres around the world or set up their own learning studio.

Words from Teachers
“I have been a Helen Doron English teacher for 7 years. . . . I knew I wanted to teach children a foreign language, but I didn’t know how. School was so rigid and boring, and in contrast, I discovered this wonderful method where children learn just by playing and enjoying themselves. I still think it is just amazing!”
“Helen Doron English is today the top and leading programme in the world not just because of its methodology, not just because of its materials, but because we have the TOP TEACHERS!”
