This is a reading and discussion-based course on effective, current methodology for teaching English to adult speakers of other languages with emphasis given to teaching in classrooms in countries where English is not the dominant language – an English as a foreign language context. While the emphasis is on methodology, other aspects of English language teaching, such applicable theories in linguistics and education, will also be addressed. In addition, we will view teaching on the text’s DVD (or streaming online: http://www.pearsonelt.com/pelt) and other online videos to reflect on current best practice models. At the end of the course, participants are expected to be able to produce plans and analysis which demonstrate understanding of the principles illustrated.
If any prerequisites are required, they will be listed above. Prerequisites require an instructor override in advance of your registration in Ursa.

At this time, UNC has secured approval to serve online education to students from every state and the U.S. Virgin Islands via our participation in NC-SARA and some additional state-by-state authorizations. However, we are not currently accepting students to our online programs who reside in Puerto Rico or the CNMIs. Due to how fluid these agreements can be at the state or federal level, we recommend checking our Eligibility by State page for details.
