CT Teaching English to Beginners: Short Spotlight Course

CT Teaching English to Beginners: Short Spotlight Course

$ 26.00

Teaching English to beginners can be daunting. How do I speak to them? What if they can’t understand me? How can I teach them if they have no English?

Learn how to teach beginners with confidence in our tutor-led short, Zoom course, part of our Spotlight Live TESOL Series.

Designed for anyone who is engaged in TEFL or ESOL for outreach, you’ll learn how to approach teaching English to beginners, use starter material effectively and benefit from practical tips and techniques. You’ll engage with some short, online preparatory modules before putting your knowledge into practice in a tutor-led hour on Zoom with your peers.

Who is this course for?
Open to anyone over the age of 18 with a good level of English, it’s particularly suitable for individuals or small groups of Christians engaged in outreach to second language speakers, either in an English-speaking country (ESOL) or teaching overseas (TEFL) whether online or face-to-face. It’s ideal for new teachers as well as for those who want a refresher programme, or who are looking to further develop their professional English teaching skills. As this is a course aimed at assisting Christians in English outreach, the Zoom course session will start with introductions and a short time of prayer.

What we cover:
We’ll look at the following areas:
* complete beginners vs false beginners
* common problems that beginners have
* practical ways to keep lessons simple
* specific teaching techniques to help beginners learn and progress quickly

Finally, in your Zoom session, you’ll get to introduce a grammar structure or set of new language to beginners in a peer-peer setting.

How is this course run?
This course runs through the Global English TESOL course platform. With no final exam, you are graded by continuous assessment through the pre-session modules and attendance on the Zoom session.

Do I get a certificate?
You’ll receive a certificate upon successful completion, along with PDF resources of the materials and video presented online. We are also on hand for advice and feedback throughout your short course.

How this interactive Zoom course works
This course is ideal if you’ve got a good broadband connection so can work entirely online via a tablet/PC/Mac. You’ll complete interactive exercises, watch videos via YouTube before your live Zoom session with up to 7 other trainees, led by an expert trainer to help bring the subject to life.

Meet your course tutor
This course is led by expert tutor Steve Button, Course Tutor at Global English TESOL. Steve has many years’ experience in the TESOL industry, teaching English, managing language schools and developing teacher training programmes.

  1. JG, UK

    Relaxed, friendly atmosphere with no pressure. Participation by all candidates and opportunity to practice what we had learned. Opportunities to ask questions at all stages.

  2. Sharon Hunter

    The sessions really helped me a lot. Although I have quite a lot of teaching experience (with beginners), the change to online teaching is something I am still trying to develop. So the tips you provided were very helpful for me. It was also a wonderful experience to share and listen to other teachers and their experience! I would most certainly be interested in further sessions

  3. Wendy Dempsey

    I thought the course was excellent! I loved getting feedback on my lesson and watching how someone else conducts their lesson. The thing I like best about these spotlight classes is it makes the school seem so much more personal. I teach beginners and this class gave me tips that I have already been able to incorporate into my lessons.

  4. David Ball

    The course provided a very helpful overview of the subject, in a supportive context, with a wide variety of stimulating web sourced material as I meet the challenge of using Zoom.
