Course content

You will study the methodology of language teaching and learning in a multi-lingual group, encouraging discussion and exchange of ideas drawn from different languages. You will pursue and develop specific language skills independently and according to individual needs. You will develop a portfolio of materials and examples of work through a programme called 'Subject Knowledge Enhancement' (SKE), in order to maintain and improve their languages skills. This is especially important for those who wish to develop a weaker second language. The focus of SKE is to be able to teach confidently through the medium of the target language.
