Host overview

The English Teacher Training College and Bilingual Classroom Initiative (ABCi) is a not-for-profit Austrian college with a dual mission: Firstly, as a college to provide a practical education in teacher training for Student Teachers from the English-speaking world based solely on the candidate's academic merit. Secondly, as a charity outreach, to promote language learning, cultural exchange and foster understanding between English-speaking countries and Austria. By bringing hundreds of teachers from England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, America, Canada, Northern Ireland, South Africa, New Zealand and Australia into Austrian classrooms we hope to reach every child with a free English project by the year 2020.
