What's it all about?
Learn ESL teaching strategies that will set your adult ESL/EFL students up for success! Over the next six weeks, you'll discover ways to teach ESL that create a meaningful and positive learning environment for your students. You'll get to know what motivates them and how you can tailor your ESL teaching methods to their needs.
We'll look at the key role that planning plays, because when your students know what to expect, they'll respond positively—and you'll teach with more confidence. You'll gather a wealth of principles for how to choose truly effective activities for such skills as listening, speaking, reading, writing, grammar, and pronunciation. Along the way, you'll pick up practical ways to incorporate both traditional and alternative forms of assessment into your classroom teaching. And finally, we'll spend some time talking about how you can become a more reflective teacher and continue to grow both professionally and personally.
By the end of this course, you'll be teaching ESL in a way that helps your students move skillfully from the classroom to the real world!
