OVERVIEW

There will be two courses of 32 hours each with a compulsory attendance of 80%. The second year laboratory is a continuation of the first year laboratory. The same material and teaching methods will be used. This course is part of a five-year course which aims to bring the students to a B2 level of English  and to provide them with the instruments necessary to be able to teach English at both nursery and primary level

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Course description: The second year laboratory picks up where the first laboratory finishes, providing students with the competence they need to be able to teach English as a foreign language to infant and primary school children. The lessons are designed to reinforce all four language skills as well as consolidating an active knowledge of vocabulary and grammar with a particular emphasis on speaking and authentic pronunciation. By the end of the second year, students will be expected to have reached level B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, this being the second step towards attainment of level B2, which is the target for the end of the 5-year course.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The primary goal is to compete  the  B1 level  by  the end  of the second year as part of the 5 year course leading to B2 certification. However the course is also designed to provide students with the tools they need to be able to teach English with confidence and competence. The text used for the first year course will be finished during the second year laboratory as the students aim to reach the first threshold level of English
