Moodle will be populated with resources every week (presentations and activities). Class discussion, group activities and games, written tasks, reading and listening activities. The emphasis will be on learning through communication, though grammar points will also be taught as appropriate. Teaching will be done through whole class work, individual work and small group and pair work. Methods of learning include role play, listening activities, games, music and interactive activities.
Progress is checked informally through question and answer sessions in class, monitoring of group and pair work activities, feedback and homework.
You will make greater progress if you are able to do at least one hour of study at home in between the classes! There is no formal accreditation of this course.
