This part of the course is designed to help you improve your fluency and command of English in stimulating ways. We use a continuously updated range of resources, materials and approaches and cover areas such as: advanced language practice including idiomatic range, appropriacy and accuracy of expression, current usage, collocation, style and register, metaphorical and imaginative use of language, grammatical review, expansion of vocabulary, development of oral fluency, and also pronunciation with emphasis on the features of connected speech.
What does it mean to be a creative teacher? We will look at ways of working creatively with texts, pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar and areas such as storytelling, music, poetry, drama and movement. This course is practical and focuses on learning through enjoyment and creativity. Participants are encouraged to experience ideas and adapt them to the needs and interests of their own learners. Ideas and materials covered will be of special interest to teachers of secondary and adult students.
Update your knowledge of Britain today – its contemporary language and usage as well as popular culture, literature, people in the news, politics, royalty, education, humour, housing etc.
The course enables you to work with ideas and materials (questionnaires, DVD/video, cartoons, current articles from the media and the Internet) that you can adapt for classroom use.
Teachers of teenagers and adults, with a level of English at CEFR B2 or above.
