This course will help you develop skills in teaching and learning English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), guiding you in planning lessons for different levels of ESOL. You will learn about teaching reading, writing, speaking and listening; where to source materials for teaching; the use of realia in teaching and there will be an opportunity to prepare a lesson to teach to your peers. You do not have to be a qualified teacher to do the course but some knowledge of ESOL teaching and the learners would be helpful.
