PREPARATION

An optional four week e-learning phase precedes the two week course at Anglolang.  This focuses on language, culture and technology based activities. This part of the course is delivered via the Internet and is conducted at the students’ own pace. A chat room and message board facility enable course participants to meet and share ideas before the classroom based phase of the course begins. E-learning feedback from Anglolang tutors is provided on a one-to-one basis. A profile (including a photo) of each participant and trainer is also provided.

Before arriving in Scarborough, participants receive details of their accommodation. If this is a homestay provider, a family description is provided.

METHODOLOGY

This course uses a wide variety of communicative activities to develop language competence and will also raise participants’ awareness of how technology can be used in the classroom. Participants gain confidence in using technology through practical sessions which equip them with ideas and materials that they can use upon their return to their own country. They will take part in seminars, workshops, lectures, open discussions and a study visit during term time (e.g. a primary school, a secondary school, an FE college or a training and enterprise organization) or a place of cultural interest (non-term time). The exact content of the course is negotiated before and throughout the course to take into account the specific needs and developing interests of each group.

Participants are grouped according to their English level for morning language development sessions and are encouraged to reflect on how they could adapt the activities done in lessons for use in their own classrooms. Afternoon methodology sessions are grouped according to teaching context.

FOLLOW UP

On the final afternoon participants discuss dissemination ideas and complete a course evaluation form. They are given the opportunity to join a mailing list of EU teachers who have participated in previous Anglolang teacher training courses to encourage collaboration and the development of future projects. During this final phase, participants are also asked to share their experiences with project work. The trainers provide key information to encourage participants to begin a project of their own.
