Improve your English language skills and make your school more international.

Location: Seville / Malaga

Summary

The iDevelop English Course is designed for teachers and other school staff, and aims to simultaneously improve their language skills and exchange professional and cultural experiences. We expect our participants to become effective educational leaders and positive change agents in a wide variety of institutional settings and cultural contexts.
To achieve these goals the whole course programme is based on active participation, effective communication and constructive discussion. Moreover, the modules taught combine linguistic, educational and cultural aspects and are fully adjusted to each group specific expectations, needs and level.
While learning and practicing English in a group setting, participants are able to work together to improve their language skills and competences.

Methodology

The course is designed to encourage active participation of each beneficiary and to use more practice than
theory. The following methodologies are to be used:

  1. Visual learning – a visual source such as a PowerPoint presentation, a guide or an information sheet is
    provided so that the participant may observe for themselves what is being taught. As teachers they will
    understand that not every student learns in the same manner and through visual learning they are able to
    look at/ read what they are learning to further absorb it.
  2.  PowerPoint Presentation – in order to practice their language skills, the participants will have the chance
    to research a cultural topic and create a presentation on this topic. The act of teaching somebody else,
    further engrains the material in one’s mind, therefore, this activity is designed to help the participants to
    reinforce what they have learnt.
  3.  Kinetic learning – the participant will put into practice what they have been taught by completing
    activities, worksheets and discussions about each topic in order to reinforce their knowledge and to ensure
    that the vocabulary is retained after the completion of the class.

COURSE SPECIFIC COMPETENCIES
General language skills: participants will improve their language skills and enrich their vocabulary in basic
conversation and themes in English. Thanks to regular summarises of grammar and vocabulary they will be
able to order and systematise their knowledge and information gained.

How can the skills learnt by the participants during the course be applied upon return to their home country?

  1. By practicing communication and speaking skills through discussions and presentations, teachers will be
    able to more effectively speak in public and better control and reduce stress. Improving communication and
    speaking abilities also can help them to get more confidence while teaching and express their arguments,
    statements and opinions in a more understandable and clear manner.
  2. By improving English language skills, teachers will be able to understand the basics of conversation not
    only in person but also on the internet. As many materials we see online are in English, this widens the
    teachers’ opportunities of the resources and material they can view online, regarding both work topics and
    materials for personal use.
  3. The teachers will be more aware of both British and Spanish culture and traditions and can further
    understand cultural elements that they may come across through potential work with English or Spanishspeaking
    individuals which they previously would not have been aware of. The course promotes multiculturalism
    and the understanding of other cultures aside from their own.
  4. The international experience should encourage teachers to promote internationalism, tolerance and
    simple worlds’ curiosity among students and their co-workers.
