The "English Language Essentials for Teachers and Adult Educators" is an Erasmus+ course designed to provide basic or beginner-level English language skills specifically tailored for educators working with adults and teachers of secondary grade levels. This course aims to enhance the language proficiency of teachers and adult educators, enabling them to effectively communicate, instruct, and engage with their students in an English-speaking environment.
The course is divided into comprehensive modules that cover essential language skills such as speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Participants will learn and practice fundamental grammar rules, expand their vocabulary, and develop their pronunciation and conversational skills. Special emphasis is placed on practical applications of English in an educational context, including classroom management, giving instructions, and conducting discussions. Throughout the course, participants will engage in various interactive activities, including role-plays, group discussions, language games, and language-based projects. These activities promote active participation, collaboration, and a hands-on approach to learning, ensuring that participants can immediately apply their newly acquired language skills in real-life teaching situations.
By the end of the course, participants will have gained increased confidence in using English as a medium of instruction and communication. They will be equipped with a solid foundation in the English language, enabling them to create engaging lesson plans, deliver effective presentations, and engage in meaningful conversations with their adult learners.
Classes take place Monday to Friday in the morning.
