The course:

This is a 60-hour online course for English language teachers who want to brush up on their teaching skills in 2021. The course focuses on teaching in various contexts (General English, teaching in schools, teaching one-to-one, teaching for exams etc.), and includes sessions on teaching the four skills, teaching systems, correcting errors and giving feedback, teaching young learners, teenagers, older learners, and much more. The second edition of this course will be offered between February and June 2021.

Most of the sessions will be taught by Higor Cavalcante, but there will also be sessions run by very special guests, who will be announced in November 2020.

The sessions:

All the sessions will take place live and the are recorded. That means that if you can’t participate in them live, you’ll be able to watch a recording, which will be available for 7 days. The classes offer a mixture of theory and discussion of its applicability in the classroom, and they aim at helping teachers to become better prepared to help their learners succeed.

Apart from the sessions, participants doing the whole course also have access to a Google Classroom with extra materials such as videos, articles, tests etc., all with a view to helping you develop more and more. Finally, certificates will be issued weekly for every session you take part in.
