On this course, teachers will develop their language skills primarily for use in the classroom where subjects are taught through English (CLIL).
By the end of the course, the teachers will have developed their basic classroom language skills and will be able to identify when to use these in a classroom setting.
Through the 5 different modules, teachers will increase their knowledge of the language teaching that needs to be considered in a content-based classroom as well as developing their own use of the language they have to use to communicate with students in this learning context.

Classes will be conducted online via Zoom with a teacher.
