The advanced English course is focused towards elevating participants prior knowledge and covering a varied range of topics from the use of technology in the classroom to advanced pronunciation and grammar structures. Furthermore, all the activities have teachers in mind and participants will be given the skills to adapt the activities during the course and encouraged to creatively use English in their own learning environments.
The aim of the course is to introduce and guide the participants through more advanced, uncommon structures they need to know in English as educators. All designed to be used in real-time, real-life practical situations, focusing on how and when to use them with their own pupils. Ultimately participants will learn to takethe knowledge forward and adapt what they learn to every classroom situation.
The course dynamic is focused on combining diverse, dynamic activities both in the classroom and around the city, these factors make the week far more enjoyable and add an element of cultural immersion.
A focus on technology and how to really exploit these platforms in the class makes the course relevant and current for the modern educator. The combination of indoor and outdoor activities really gives participants the opportunity to learn varied content in various contexts. Both elements will be delivered in fun, manageable, and above all practical ways.
The participant knows how to:
Throughout the duration of the course, we will extensively explore varied strategies in delivering specific content dynamically, including taking focus away from the interactive board and letting students take charge and control, with interaction and participation the key focus in all activities. Also learning by doing will have a heavy emphasis, gamification, team work and positivity will be promoted during all activities.
The activities will be organised as dynamically as possible and pair/team work always focused on, there will be examples of indoor and outdoor activities accordingly and the opportunity to adapt and further explore the potential of each. The idea of reuse and adaption from outdoors to indoors will also be a reoccurring theme and a major part of the experience.
We will use varied materials from flashcards to individually made digital games. Some traditional elements will also be used, such as puzzles, maps and quizzes. The materials will always represent those a typical teacher has to hand, and exploiting technology such as mobile phones and digital white boards will be covered extensively. The overall concept is to introduce, expand and facilitate what a modern educator has to hand in a contemporary classroom.
