Introduction to Teaching English as a Second Language 12

Introduction to ESL Instruction 12 is an introductory course to teach  high school students about training young English language learners in  spoken English.

Introduction to ESL Instruction 12 is designed for students who  would like to explore and develop skills in teaching Spoken English to  young ESL learners. Language training skills are in ever higher demand  and provide a vehicle for cultural exchange and relationship. Students  who are planning to travel internationally or who have an interest in  tutoring international students in Canada will benefit from this course  by developing a very valuable language training skill set. By the end of  the course, students will have an introduction to the skills and the  resources needed to engage young language learners in a study of spoken  English. Students will be familiar with the characteristics of young  language learners and how that affects both teaching style and lesson  planning. Students will be encouraged to develop their own knowledge of  themselves, their students and their language. Students will create and  have access to a wide variety of lesson plans at the beginner,  intermediate and advanced skill levels. Students will also engage in a  number of activities to increase their language teaching skills and  their cultural awareness.
