Course Units

This introductory unit provides you with essential information on teacher edict, teaching environments and what is expected during the course
English has a complicated system of rules and exceptions for its syntax. Part of the complexity arises from its history. A basic understanding of why the language operates the way it does is essential.

Researchers have been trying to find the golden method of language learning for a long time. This unit will take a look at some of the insights gained from applied linguistic research with regards to learning a foreign language.

Managing student behavior is at the forefront of any teachers’ priorities. Without successful managerial skills, hindrances to teaching are exacerbated. We place great importance on the ability to successfully manage student behavior.

Understanding what motivates learners is critical to managing their behavior. In this unit we uncover the myriad reasons, both individual and societal, that motivate students to learn.

There are many different ways of teaching, and, furthermore, each teacher brings his/her own personality to the classroom. In order to be an effective teacher, one needs to have an understanding of learning behaviour.

Differences in learning styles can be found between students of different ages or skill level. We will illustrate ways of making adjustments with regards to these factors.

Keeping students motivated, and tailoring your presentation to suit their learning styles is crucial. Overtly correcting may inhibit students to try, while too lax an attitude may confuse and disorient. We encourage learning through discovery.

Much EFL time will be dedicated to teaching new vocabulary items. We will cover different ways of teaching vocabulary, strategies for selecting appropriate words, and applicable activities for reinforcement.

These represent very sensitive topics in the EFL setting. Theories on different methods of teaching, as well common hindrances will be covered.

Planning and delivery of lesson content is the cornerstone to TEFL training. The course focuses more on the practical element of presenting lessons and how to systematically deliver them.

When teaching any language; knowledge of the structure of the language is essential. This chapter will dedicate some time to grammar instruction and the different ways in which grammar can be presented in the classroom.

A major part of language learning is learning how to read and listen. This chapter explores various reasons for reading and listening, and the different ways these skills can effectively be taught in the classroom.

Mastery of speaking and writing skills are also essential in order to be considered a successful communicator. This chapter looks at different conventions that govern these areas, and takes a look at different ways of teaching these skills.
