Because the foundation of this course is in best practices, new and experienced ESP practitioners are welcome from all areas of the field. Course participants may be addressing the needs of pre-experienced learners (preparing to enter a specific discourse community) who need (1) English for Academic Purposes (EAP) for courses in specific disciplines in universities, or (2) Vocational English for Specific Purposes (VESP) for courses at vocational and technical secondary schools. Other course participants might be focused on English for Occupational Purposes (EOP) courses in the business sector or other fields that are intended for pre-experienced or experienced learners already in the workplace who need English as a tool for their job. Regardless of which ESP target learner population is the focus (EAP, VESP or EOP), the target learners are usually adults with an intermediate level of English or higher. The course will also address the need for training in English for Specific Purposes to promote education and economic development at the local and national levels.

As a community of professionals, participants will engage in ongoing dialogue, sharing their experience, success and concerns in their teaching. A support system will be established with exposure to resources found within individual teaching communities and external locations such as online forums and information centers.

c. Tech Literate (knowledge of email, web browsers, and file management)
d. Works with Children, Youth, or Adults.


9.     Teaching English to Young Learners (TEYL)


English learners at the primary level (approximately ages 5-10) are cognitively “primed” to acquire language skills in ways that lend themselves well to an integrated skills and content-based, experiential approach. The educator who understands the cognitive and social processes of second language acquisition for Teaching English to Young Learners (TEYL) is better equipped to help the learner navigate the processes of classroom learning activities while also creating a fun, positive environment. In many cases, TEYL educators in English as a Foreign Language settings have a limited amount of time to accomplish their teaching goals and meet local requirements regarding the use of specific texts, tests or other materials. A low-resource environment can also pose challenges. In this course, participants have the opportunity to explore solutions for such challenges through an overview of current research and “best” practices (always context-dependent) for TEYL plus hands-on experimentation with a wide array of freely available online and local resources.
a. High Intermediate to Advanced English
b. In-Service Teacher
