Coures Content

Module 1: How to teach SYSTEMS (Total of: 17 hrs and a half)

1. How to teach grammar
(3 sessions- 2 hrs and a half each)

Teach your students how to use grammatical structures effectively, and to make it interesting and interactive for your students. Start by informing yourself of how the language works, and the difficulties your own learners have with grammar.

 

2. How to teach vocabulary
(2 sessions- 2 hrs and a half each)

Teach your students lexical sets appropriate to their level and needs. Remember without words, your students can not communicate nor get their messages through.

 

3. How to teach functional language
(2 sessions- 2 hrs and a half each)

Teach your students the language needed to communicate effectively in different situations. Functional language allows students to make connections with real world activities, like buying a train ticket, ordering a takeaway meal and/or complaining in a shop.

Module 2: How to teach SKILLS (Total of: 16 hrs)

4. How to teach reading
(2 sessions- 2 hrs and a half each)

Teach your students the sub skills needed to understand texts from different disciplines. Remember your aim is to develop your students’ receptive skills, not their understanding of every single word in a text.

 

5. How to teach listening
(2 sessions- 2 hrs and a half each)

Teach your students the sub skills needed to understand texts from different disciplines. Remember your aim is to develop your students’ receptive skills, not their understanding of every single word in an audio.

 

6. How to teach speaking
(1 session- 3 hrs)

Teach your students how to speak fluently. Developing the students’ speaking skills is sometimes undervalued despite the fact that it is the most desirable skill in real-life communication situations.

 

7. How to teach writing
(1 session- 3 hrs)

Teach your students how to convey meaningful messages. Develop your students’ writing skills by getting them to write down their ideas onto paper without worrying much about grammar, spelling, or other English mechanics.

Module 3: How to INTEGRATE Skills and Systems (Total of: 6 hrs)

8. How to teach literature
(1 session- 3 hrs)

Teach students literature and get them to appreciate arts and develop their critical thinking. Literature often touches on common themes and values which enable students to understand and appreciate different cultures and perspectives from their own.

 

9. How to integrate skills and systems in a language lesson
(1 session- 3 hrs)

Teach your students systems (vocabulary, grammar and functions) in context and help them develop their skills(reading, speaking, listening and writing) at the same time through a meaningful context.

Module 4: Supplementary Module (Total of: 5 hrs and a half)

10. How to integrate technology into your teaching
(1 session- 2 hrs and a half)
