Communicative Teaching & Activities

Communicative Teaching & Activities

On this course, you'll be learning about the origins of Communicative Language Teaching, considering how this differs from earlier methodologies and how it can help your students to develop communicative competence and prepare them for English language exchanges in the real world.
You will also be looking at activity design in order to maximise opportunities for student-to-student interaction in your classrooms. Through hands-on, practical tasks, you'll be working with other teachers on the course to evaluate a range of communicative activities, as well as designing your own through the use of a framework.

Each module should take about 5 hours. You can study at a time convenient for you, but each task must be completed by the specified deadline.
There will be a variety of tasks to complete. Collaboration is a key part of the course, although this doesn’t mean you have to be online at the same time as your peers. However, it’s important you keep to the task deadlines to enable everyone to complete the necessary work.
At the end of each module there will be an online live chat session, timetabled for a day and time that suits the majority. For those that are unable to attend the live session, it will be recorded and uploaded to the site.
