Course Description

One of the fundamental skills in learning a foreign language is to be able to discover specific patterns and apply them in the right context. There are many lexical phrases that are commonly used. All of this we take for granted in our own language, but essential if you would like to express yourself in a more native-like or natural way.

This course will train language teachers to master specific patterns concerning key issues in today’s extremely challenging environment by presenting some key language functions — paraphrasing, giving accounts, stating issues, making proposals, before speculating on the possible outcomes that they may have. This will help participant maximize their potential in the language — be it for professional, academic, or personal reasons — as well as their capacity to teach English to non-native speakers.

The course will cover the following main areas:

Understanding key language functions in English and their corresponding grammatical patterns;
Planning out essay writing (applying FEDPs) while inserting key topic-specific collocations;
Academic writing;
Speaking as you write writing as you speak;
Improving Reading Skills – You are what you read! (language acquisition and extensive reading);
Testing listening comprehension.
