Calling all English teachers! It’s time to revamp that resume and brush up on those language skills. Covid-19 may have changed the way we teach, but it hasn’t stopped us from moving forward. This fall we’re offer three fabulous workshops to assist educators in the field of teaching English. These courses are also ideal for students who have studied English as a Second Language and could use a refresher. Even if you’re not teaching, you’ll find these three workshops to be a great addition to your major.
Here at the English Language Institute our professional educators will lead short-term, online workshops that meet only a few hours a week. The classes will be interactive, synchronous, and provide you with the opportunity to meet other people in your field. An official certificate from Missouri State University will be given upon completion of one of these courses.
Which one interests you?
Workshop 1: Pronunciation for English Language Teachers
This course is ideal for anyone struggling with specific sounds or wanting to reduce their accent. It’s also a great way to help teachers assist international students with their speaking ability. Techniques for teaching pronunciation, consonant and vowel sounds, intonation and stress will all be a part of this unique course.
Dates: Monday, September 14 to Wednesday, November 4
Days and Time: Mondays and Wednesdays from 7:30pm-9:30pm U.S. Central Time via Zoom
Workshop 2: Analyzing Language for Teaching
Our second workshop is aimed at those who may need an overview of the English language structure. Linguistics and language awareness, as well as an in-depth focus on vocabulary, function, and pronunciation, will be provided in this course. The content taught is not only valuable to English language learners and instructors, but to anyone seeking a degree in language or linguistics. We hope to see you there!
Dates: Tuesday, October 6 to Thursday, October 29
Days and Time: Tuesday and Thursdays from 7:30pm-9:30pm U.S. Central Time via Zoom
Workshop 3: Teaching English Language Online
And finally, we are offering a course for instructors hoping to increase student engagement and make online learning more successful. In this course, you will learn more about reading, writing, listening, and speaking the English language. We’ll also provide you with unique features on Zoom and other sources online that encourage a more student-centered classroom.
Dates: Tuesday, October 6 to Thursday, November 12
Day and Time: Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:30pm-9:30pm U.S. Central Time via Zoom
