WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?
This course is for teachers who are teaching another subject, such as geography, history or sciences, and using English to teach the subject.
The course takes a practical approach with discussions and demonstrations of materials. You will work with your tutor to produce a wide range of materials and activities that can be used as part of a CLIL curriculum.
Some subjects that may be covered are:

- Developing awareness of and responding to different learning styles
- Exploring different approaches to testing and assessment
