CORSI DI FORMAZIONE LINGUISTICA E METODOLOGICA PER DOCENTI

 

Courses

The following language courses are designed to target four different areas which teachers may want to improve and consolidate for their professional development.

 

  • CEF Level consolidation
  • English through conversation
  • Cambridge English language certification
  • Teacher training workshops focusing on methodology

 

Course structure

Entry level test and needs analysis, end-of-course test, course evaluation, certificate.

 

Methodology

All courses will be taught using the communicative approach which means that the objective of the teaching is to help students gain the necessary linguistic abilities to communicate effectively. Four communicative abilities will be developed; understanding, reading, writing and speaking. As well as exposure to the language, the participants also learn how to interact effectively with other speakers improving spoken fluency and accuracy. Phonology, lexis and use of the language are analysed in-depth and always introduced in an authentic context. Grammar is treated more as a means to a clear and and correct communication then as the definitive objective of the lessons.

  • Teacher training workshops focusing on methodology

The following workshops are designed to allow teachers to reflect on their current teaching practices. Each seminar allows for active participation and discussion while providing both inspiration and practical ideas for the classroom.

Each two-hour seminar can be attended as an individual workshop.

 

 

 

Workshop 1 : New Language Improvement 1

Questa sessione si focalizza sul linguaggio moderno British English attraverso la cultura popolare e i media. Analizza il fatto che la lingua Inglese è in constante cambiamento e aggiornamento. Aiuta i docenti ad espandere il loro vocabolario attraverso l’analisi di articoli di giornale alla ricerca di nuovo linguaggio attraverso film clips, running dictations e nuove espressioni idiomatiche.

 

Workshop 2 : New Language Improvement 2

Questo workshop si focalizza su due nuove aree dello sviluppo del linguaggio. La prima riguarda la Lingua Inglese e la tecnologia, weblish’ e ‘technospeak’ e l’effetto dei social media che sta avendo sulla lingua Inglese. La seconda area è Eco-living e parlare ‘green’. Inoltre si sofferma sulle sfide e opportunità che gli scrittori di Oxford English Dictionary hanno avuto a causa dei cambiamenti.

 

Workshop 3 : Teaching students with learning differences

Dyslexia is a learning difference and the term ‘difference’ suggests that if appropriate adjustments are made, students can be successful learners. This session looks at heightening teachers’ awareness to the small adjustments which can be made in the classroom to accommodate dyslexic learners, looking at areas such as classroom management, materials, lesson structuring, visual and auditory processing, sequencing and mind-mapping.

Workshop 4 : Mental Imagery

This workshop serves as a practical guide to the importance of mental imagery in the classroom. Language learners understand and remember better when they make more connections and imagery is an important tool in achieving this. Teachers are given many practical ideas, suggestions and activities. Some points looked at are the multiple uses of imagery in language learning to help focus attention, and activities to increase learners’ cognitive skills and creativity.
