Introduction to models of teaching: Global English

How to teach English as a truly international Language

Target group

  • Teachers of English who are mainly interested in CEFR levels A1-B2 and would like to teach English not primarily as the language of the US and the UK.

Learning objectives

With the help of examples and practical tasks you will discuss successful and less successful uses of English as an international language (that is: English used by a range of native speakers as well as non-native speakers). This part of the workshop will refer to pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary, and communicative strategies (oral and written).

At the end of the workshop, you will also be familiar with relevant didactic and methodological consequences, especially about principles and research results connected to the model Basic Global English and aspects of an Advanced Global English.

All teaching techniques presented are suitable for onsite courses; some of them also for online teaching. They can be put into practice alongside any coursebooks.
