Course Content

During this 2 week course you will learn about different communicative techniques for the English language classroom, take part in small group and pairwork activities, open seminars, workshops and visits. You will also update your language through the themed sessions such as the British education system, multicultural Britain, law and order, the A-Z of etiquette.

In your methodology sessions you will be encouraged to reflect on all activities used in the course and how they can be adapted for use in your own classroom. In these methodology sessions we look in detail at a range of modern communicative techniques and approaches.

Sessions include:

  • the lexical approach
  • working with phrasal verbs
  • learning styles
  • the internet and task-based learning
  • phonology and connected speech
  • writing - cohesion and coherence
  • listening - authentic texts
  • error correction
  • testing and assessment
  • authentic video/DVD in ELT

 

Cultural activities include guided walks, a visit to Old Bailey (High Court) and the British Library.
