This interactive course provides excellent examples of activities to break the ice with your new or current groups of second language speakers and gives you the chance to practice these online in a friendly peer-peer setting. Improve your skills as an English language teacher with our TESOL Live Spotlight course on Engagement Activities and Warmers for teaching English.


Interactive price: £20.00

Why this course?

This course is for anyone who wants to find out more about how to engage students better at the beginning of a class.

We look at popular warmers for the EFL/ESOL classroom and warmers 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.

It's great if you are already teaching and want a refresher course, or if you are just starting out with online teaching and want to find out how to engage your learners more effectively.

Your course will take you step-by-step through warmers for adults, young learners and online students, then you'll benefit from a small group Zoom session with your course tutor. You'll have the opportunity to present a warmer activity in a group or small group setting.  There is also a personal tutor on hand for advice and for feedback.

In addition, there is no final exam. Instead you are graded on your marks across the modules so you will always know how you are progressing.  Your A, B or Pass grade is shown on your free Global English Certificate.

We've made this course as flexible and easy for you to access as possible. 

How this interactive Zoom course works

This course is ideal if you’ve got a good broadband connection so can work entirely online via a tablet/PC/Mac. You’ll complete interactive exercises, watch videos via YouTube and participate with others in a Zoom session, which helps bring the subject to life. 

Meet your course tutor

This course is led by William Bradridge, Director of Studies at Global English TESOL. 
William has over 25 years' experience in the TESOL industry, in teaching English, managing language schools and developing teacher training programmes. Read more from William at the tutor profile on this page.  

Eligibility 

Open to native and non-native English speakers over 18 years old with a good level of spoken English. If you are a non-native English speaker, please see the course eligibility requirements on our FAQ page. Remember you can always ask us if you are not sure about your level of English. 

Course duration

This short course can easily be completed in a day, or over a few hours each evening. However, you have up to 60 days to complete it. 

What do I need to take part?

* A PC/laptop/iPad/tablet/phone with a webcam and microphone, and the ability to screen share.
* Headphones are preferred but not essential.
* You will need some basic Zoom competency, such as the ability to join the session, enable your camera/sound etc. Our short pre-sessional course is essential before the live Zoom class and will help you here, but it is your responsibility to be ready technically for the live session.

A TEFL certificate is not needed for this course.

What about any tech problems on the day?

We know it happens occasionally. Hopefully, you will have worked through any major Zoom issues beforehand. On the day, if you have trouble getting online, get in touch. We will try to help, but we cannot guarantee support and you should consider that if you cannot connect to a session that is running successfully, you will have lost your place. We can transfer you to an new session upon payment of a £10 Spotlight transfer fee.

Everything you need to complete your course and gain your certificate is included in the one fee above. However, check out these optional extras:

  • Additional time course extensions available if you need to go beyond 60 days 
  • Global English printed and embossed certificate posted to you (£15 UK / £20 outside)
  • Resources from the course available as a FREE downloadable PDF from your student area
  • Discount on further Spotlight Live TESOL sessions or Global English online programmes

This five-hour short course on warmers and engagement activities contains approximately four hours of online material and a one hour Zoom seminar where you participate with a small group:

Student Comments

This is a brand news course in our TESOL Spotlight Series. 

"Thank you so much for the Zoom session just now, which was so well organised, professional, and so enjoyable. It was great to meet up with others and share ideas. The format and timings worked so well, it could not have gone better. Thanks to Louisa and Steve, of course, too!"
Rosemary Edney, UK

"Thank you so much for the course and practical advice!"
Antonina Minenko, Russia

I found the meeting very helpful with sharing our warm up exercises and brainstorming. I enjoyed the interaction and meeting the other teachers and students. It was also fun! 
I’m certainly more motivated, now towards my TESOL studies.
Colleen Brider, France
 

I've got so many ideas from the course content and Zoom session. Would it be possible to make the Zoom sessions an hour and a half long? The time flew by too quickly! Thank you very much.
Tamsyn Mott, UK
