Course Overview

This is a general language development course aimed at teachers. This course is tied to the CES curriculum framework which is closely tied to the CEFR and utilises learning outcomes appropriate to the level of the learners. This course will blend general language development with a focus on pedagogy and certain teaching methods and contexts. We will look at the theory and the practice behind some of the lessons we provide.

 

Course Aims

The course will aim to meet the course participants language needs and to help support them on their journey as an independent language learner. This course will also encourage participants to think of the way lessons are delivered and to begin to reconsider the implications of certain choices that a teacher makes both in the planning and delivery of lessons.
