Improving Speaking Performance in the Classroom courses are for language teachers of all syllabus levels who want to develop their practice in this area. These courses encourage teachers to reflect on, and take greater responsibility for their teaching as well as become more innovative in their classroom practice.
In this course, teachers will have the opportunity to become more familiar with the key elements of a speaking lesson including how they can help their learners to improve their speaking ability and increase their confidence by applying effective speaking practice.
Online Improving Speaking Performance courses are 5 weeks long and focus on the following:
*Weeks 3 and 4 will involve putting what you have learned in to practice and reflecting upon the outcome. It is important that you have access to learners during these weeks.
Teachers should expect to spend 3 - 5 hours per week on the course.
Successful completion of these courses is based on participation in collaborative activities with teachers from around the world. Discussions and activities each week are in groups. You don't need to be online at a particular time of day for our online courses, but we recommend that teachers access the courses every day. Participants who complete key weekly activities and engage fully in discussions throughout the course will receive a certificate. Tutors will mark activities completed in the week that they are set. To help you manage your time and aid collaboration, we provide clear guidelines so you know which days to carry out the activities for each week.
