language development

Language courses for teachers in school, college or university

The manual consists of seven modules which students can download weekly. There are skype tutorials after week two, four and seven, and online conference classrooms at the end of weeks two, five and six. Students submit written assignments for marking in order to receive a course certificate.

 

Each module consists of two, three or four units. Each unit is divided into chapters.

Each module is designed to take an efficient and busy person 5.5 hours to complete, not including homework. Some chapters are long, others are short. The size of each chapter depends on how much information you need about the subject. 

 

This is a manual, not a book. If you think about the contents in a manual for a car, then the section about the engine would be very large but the part about the door might be quite small by comparison. So it is with our teaching manual.
