The approaches and methods for teaching English around the world vary greatly depending on a number of factors. It is important for the teacher to be aware of what these factors are and how they impact on the choices teachers make regarding approaches, methods and procedures to adopt in the language classroom. This module will give you an opportunity to consider a range of methods for the teaching of the language form (pronunciation, lexis and grammar) and the four skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking) as well as providing the chance to discuss the appropriateness of these methods and whether or not they are feasible for your own contexts. Approaches to the teaching of language form and skills will be considered in the light of current issues surrounding Communicative Language Teaching and post-method pedagogies.
