ABOUT THE COURSE
The English Language Centre (ELC) will deliver a 10-week evening course for recent University of Lincoln graduates. The course will be entirely free.
The course provides an opportunity to engage in both the theory and practice of teaching English as a second/foreign language and you will have the opportunity to regularly put your theory into practice by teaching genuine English language learners.
The course will run from Monday the 2nd of October 2017 to the 7th of December 2017. The course is part-time and you will be expected to attend twice a week. Every Monday evening will consist of the theory aspect of the course (5.30 pm – 7 pm) and then on either Wednesday or Thursday evening (beginning at either 5.30 pm or 6 pm and finishing at 7 pm or 7.30 pm) will be a chance to, initially, observe a real language lesson and then gradually take on the teaching duties.
All of the lessons will take place in the Minerva Building on the University’s Brayford campus.
