This module is designed to provide students who intend to teach English in the future but have limited experience to date, with an introduction to English Language teaching which is both practical and theoretical.  You will be introduced to key concepts in TESOL and have the opportunity to plan and deliver lessons and receive teacher and peer feedback on this.  We will discuss the benefits of a range of techniques, e.g. error correction, and ways of managing groups of students in different contexts.  You will also observe language classes in different contexts and provide evaluations of these for colleagues in the light of the theories learnt.
