Introduction to Teaching in English
The focus will be on essential presentations techniques and strengthening the lexical tools required for giving lectures in English in an academic environment. The workshop is not intended to train participants' pedagogical skills teaching, but to develop the ability to apply English to the teaching skills one already has. This workshop is primarily aimed at participants who have not had the chance to practice their English very much and have had little exposure to English since school.
Target Group: Participants should have at least basic knowledge of English, but wish to expand their grammatical and spoken competencies in English in order to express their thoughts more fluently. Everybody will have the opportunity to present a short excerpt (5-7 mins) from a previous seminar or lecture, which will be held on the second day of the workshop, so participants.To evaluate your level, please see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_European_Framework_of_Reference_for_Languages If you have further questions about your level, please contact lecturer at firstname.lastname@example.org
Important: As mentioned in the announcement, please take a short presentation from a lecture or seminar (in English, if possible) to the workshop.
Wichtig: Bitte bringen Sie, wie in der Ausschreibung angekündigt, eine für das Seminar vorbereitete Präsentation (wenn möglich in Englisch) auf einem USB-Stick mit.
