  • Overview

    1. Aims
    This training course offers a theoretical and practical approach to the teaching
    of English as a foreign language (EFL) to Spanish-speaking students. Classroom practice
    will be fostered which includes activities in the class, activities outside the class under
    the supervision of a tutor and the opportunity to take part of the course in a Spanish
    school with Spanish students in the city of Seville. This way, not only theoretical
    content but also the cultural aspects which are involved in the practice of teaching
    English as a foreign language will be dealt with.

    2. Methodology
    From a methodological perspective, theory will be determined and learned
    from the practice. Classroom interaction and dynamics guided by the teacher will be
    dealt with in class; students will work in pairs and in small groups and will have to get
    involved in creative tasks such as lesson planning, original learning resources design,
    classroom observation and teaching. Part of the course will take place in a Spanish
    school in Seville.
