Our Continued Development Courses are aimed at existing teachers of English who want to brush up on their teaching skills, discuss modern methodologies, refresh their portfolio of teaching materials and invigorate their teaching performance in the classroom. The course also covers any awkward idiomatic or colloquial English that arises. Students on the CDC will be accomplished teachers in their own right looking for new ideas on keeping their teaching fresh and their students inspired. The most important thing about our CDC courses it that they are fully customisable. We pride ourselves on being able to listen to your requirements and build a course that will give you the scope to continue developing your classroom technique whilst taking a few new ideas home with you. Typical course content may include but not be restricted to the following: Re-evaluation of Communicative Language Teaching and the use of complementary methodologies. Which English? The teaching of pronunciation, segmental and supra-segmental, in the 21st century. Error correction, friend or foe? When and how and if teachers can help. Productive Skills – Writing. Product or process? Productive Skills – Speaking. Keys to effective oral communication and the place of repetition and drilling in the 21st century. Receptive Skills – Reading and Listening. Exploiting authentic materials; developing sub-skills and utilising top-down, bottom-up and compensatory strategies. Grammaticised lexis or lexicalised grammar? Review of language concepts including structure, function and lexis. Learner-Based Syllabus, VAKOG and individual learning strategies.
