English Language development for teachers & school staff - Subject Specific 5-day
This course is as good as our General English courses - only better! Why? Because the language focuses on your professional needs working within an English-speaking school environment. This course caters to teaching and non-teaching professionals alike. The added bonus of this course is that you get to choose aspects of the course content. Personalised learning is where we excel at Alpha School of English.
We look forward to being part of your personalised learning programme where you will experience high-quality teaching using a range of in-class and practical elements. We will also endeavour to offer you a period of time practising your language skills in real-life teaching or administrative situations.
The daily programme is divided into two main parts. The first offers you level specific input from our professional trainers, covering the four language skills, and the second part allows you to develop your specific English speaking skills relevant for your school-based working environment.Within the four language skills you will aim to do the following:
Developing your confidence in communicating effectively in the English language - practising pronunciation - exploring intonation - asking and answering common questions - increasing your vocabulary.
Improving your understanding of shorter and longer texts - reading for meaning and pleasure - tackling misconceptions in texts - learning some idiomatic language and common phrases.
Creating lists, sentences, and short texts - checking for errors and misunderstanding - reviewing key grammatical structures - learning synonyms and word alternatives - using conjunctions.
Developing confidence in listening to the spoken word - understanding different accents and pronunciation - selecting the correct information in what you hear - broadening understanding of a range of topics through listening
Within your specific speaking focus you will cover the following:
- Expanding specific vocabulary and using it in context
- Improving pronunciation of key terms related to your role
- Improve their communication skills, vital for the delivery of CLIL
- Developing a natural flow and pace of language
- Building confidence in a range of work-based situations
