This course is designed for students who will be teaching English to young learners in primary schools. It aims to improve spoken English to be used as the main language of communication in the classroom. It offers a repertoire of classroom language for teachers (e.g. checking attendance, giving instructions for doing things, organizing pair and group work, eliciting language, dealing with discipline, setting homework, evaluation of work etc.) and learners (asking for permission, asking questions, seeking clarification, etc.) The students will improve their confidence and broaden the range of language teaching activities.
