Hands–on and interactive, these short courses are a great way of developing your skills and interacting with others.
Led by TESOL experts in their fields, each individual Spotlight Live TESOL course will give you the opportunity to improve your teaching skills and knowledge, while you learn with other trainees online. You’ll prepare with a short module first, then participate in an interactive Zoom session, led by an experienced tutor.
It’s a great chance to develop your understanding of key teaching concepts in a short, accessible and enjoyable format, where you will benefit from sharing with others and practise some peer-peer teaching yourself.
**NEW** Teaching Mixed Ability Classes (TMAC): Whether groups are labelled intermediate, elementary or advanced, the students within them will all have very different abilities. This course will help you find material that you can customise for different levels in your class and show you how to do this practically using group work and break out rooms.
Zoom Basics: setting up a meeting, five lesson ideas for using the chat function, screen sharing, annotating pictures and documents, using the whiteboard in groups, playing audio and video successfully for your classes and (almost) everything you want to know about using breakout rooms.
Warmers and Engagement Activities: popular warmers for the EFL/ESOL classroom and activities that work really well online if you are teaching by Zoom or Skype. It's suitable if you are teaching young learners, teenagers or adults, and material included can be adapted across levels and age ranges.
Teaching Beginners: how to teach English to beginners and improve their ability, whether teaching them face-to-face or online. Cover some of the common problems that beginners have and discover the importance of keeping thing simple (and how we do this practically), along with specific teaching techniques to help them learn.
