Introduction to the Teaching of English

Intensive School of English has commissioned a new course aimed particularly  at new practitioners in the field of English Language teaching.  The course will  present the major systems of English thoroughly:

 

                       1. Lexis (The organisation of vocabulary)

                       2. Phonology (The organisation of pronunciation)

                       3. Grammar (The organisation of the language up to sentence level)

                       4. Discourse  (The organisation of the language above sentence level)

 

We believe the course will benefit anyone who is insecure about these systems and either in the process of studying a CELTA course or considering starting one in the near future. The course will also benefit practising teachers who wish to “brush up” their analysed knowledge of English language systems.

 

Examination

The course will lead to entry to the KAL (Knowledge about language) module of the TKT (Teaching Knowledge Test) provided by Cambridge. (Not compulsory, though strongly recommended)

 

Learning outcomes

·      Basic knowledge of the systems of English

·      Confidence when preparing systems-based lessons or elements of lessons for the EFL classroom

·      Confidence when responding to questions from learners

·      (A pass in the TKT KAL examination)

 

Duration

The course will consist of 30 hours contact time and extensive private study is further recommended.
