The input sessions are a blend of theory and practice in ELT using lecture format and practical activities based on Task Based Learning and Communicative Language Teaching. They aim to equip participants with ideas and materials that can be used with their own students as well as provide exercises to refine their own command of the language.

Throughout the course, participants are given the opportunity to consider alternative practices, reflect on their own practices and try out a variety of classroom activities. Included is a focus on how to use technology in the classroom and exploring the use of multimedia for teaching purposes. During the course, participants will be expected to come up with their own Personal Development Action Plan, and select activities which they would like to try out in their own class.

A) Drama
Drama benefits students in many ways in the language classroom, particularly those who may be shy, it builds confidence, develops language skills and enables students to use English and take risks from “behind a mask”. This session covers all aspects of using drama in the classroom, from basic mime to role play, from simulation to improvisation.
B) Communicative Language Teaching
We look at ways CLT can be used to make learning meaningful as it emphasises the need for interaction. We show participants how to implement learning strategies to improve language acquisition and make learning purposeful.
C) Pronunciation and Intonation
Pronunciation practice is exciting, interesting and meaningful. As a neglected skill in language teaching we bring it back into the class to show how beneficial it is to enable students to speak comfortably. Pronunciation is instrumental in improving listening ability and making oneself understood. No matter how good grammatical competence, knowledge of vocabulary and overall fluency are, misunderstandings can occur if there are pronunciation inaccuracies.
D) Task-based Learning
Instead of focusing on grammar acquisition and competence we show participants how to focus on the use of authentic language and to provide opportunities for students to exchange information with a focus on meaning.
Through examples, discussions, reviews and practices participants will be shown the numerous ways in which ICT can be integrated into everyday teaching so as to develop confidence in managing and utilizing ICT into the language classroom
F) Project Based Learning
Get a taste of what project-based learning is all about and how it can be incorporated into the classroom. Find out which tools best help integrate PBL into the language classroom, how to monitor and assess students, and how to design projects
