The aim of these sessions is to give participants an introductory idea of what Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) involves for both learners and teachers; what knowledge and skills an English Language teacher needs and whether it’s something that you would like to do in the future. The sessions will be very practical with demonstrations of techniques and methodologies as well as an opportunity to try out some of the ideas in peer teaching slots.
All staff or students at the University of Leicester are welcome to join this course.
