Are you going to be teaching in English in the near future? Then this intensive Teaching in English course is just the course for you. You will reflect on your approach to English-medium teaching, discuss your experiences with others and practise teaching in English and receive feedback on your performances. In this course, you will also explore the dynamics of the international classroom and work on your English language development.

Nowadays, teaching staff are increasingly required to teach in English. For this, you need an excellent command of English and a thorough awareness of the EMI methodology; English as a Medium of Instruction. In this course you will activate and expand English through participation in an English-medium course.

Course activities include:

- Vocabulary for the English Medium Instruction classroom (rephrasing, pre-teaching, daily expressions and personal vocabulary system)
- Grammar (verbs, modal verbs and questions)
- Awareness and practice of EMI methodology (scaffolding, interaction and creating a safe learning environment. Also dealing with questions, socializing, visual support and classroom English)
- Intercultural communication skills
- Teaching a session
- Pronunciation

This course is suitable for people who have reached CEFR level B2. You are required to do a placement test developed by Babel. This test consists of two parts: multiple choice and writing. A teacher will assess your language skills. On the basis of your test result you will get an advice about which course is suitable for you. Please note that it can take up to 5 working days until your language level is assessed. In case you have already completed the placement test we kindly ask for your patience, the Babel Service Desk will review your application within a few days.
