This professional language course for teachers of English aims to consolidate teachers’ pedagogical language knowledge and to develop their confidence and competence in using the language in the classroom.

The 8-unit programme addresses both the teaching of language and the language of teaching and contains tasks and activities focusing on the principles and practice of Communicative Language Teaching, understanding and teaching grammar, lexis and phonology, and on two key areas of classroom language – the language of instructions and the language of feedback.

Course details
The course includes a wide variety of interactive and reflective tasks, including:
•    discussion and debate with colleagues and tutors
•    responding to surveys and questionnaires
•    directed reading
•    lesson observation and analysis of classroom language
•    reflection on participants’ own use of classroom language

To complete the course, participants will be required to complete an assignment based on a text of their choosing and to demonstrate their language awareness and practical understanding of all the concepts dealt with throughout the programme by showing how they would exploit the text for language learning purposes in a specified context.
