Language, Methodology and Culture – ELC-T
English Language Centre

The Language, Methodology and Coulture course will help you to develop your English language skills, provide you with a refreshing and practical look at current language teaching ideas and explore modern UK life and culture.

This very practical course aims to provide participants with lots of input and ideas on elements of language, pedagogy and culture by:
- Studying the latest teaching approaches
- Learning about changes in the English language
- Raising awareness of elements of British institutions and culture
- Analysing published materials
- Developing strategies to continue learning

Input will be provided in a variety of ways (including seminars, practical workshops, trainer summaries and demonstrations) that take account of the course participants’ different learning preferences and styles. Participants will be encouraged to share their own ideas and experience, and develop networks with participants from other countries. There will be opportunities throughout the course to develop participants’ English language skills and to exploit the local context by collecting relevant authentic materials, making contact with native speakers and taking part in the school’s social and cultural programme, and outings.

A preparation pack is sent to participants before the course. Before the start of the course, participants should complete a pre-course questionnaire which will enable the course leaders to focus more specifically on the exact needs of the participants.

Participants will complete a study journal during their stay to reflect on the new ideas they have experienced and on how they will incorporate them into their teaching. They also develop a classroom project. Follow up support is available via an alumni email group and participants will be encouraged to report on their progress. A course VLE will be set up for participants to collaborate and share online.
