ELE Teacher Training: a teacher’s view

Hi there!

I’m Susana, the Academic Director here at AIL and I’d like to tell you about our ELE Teacher Training Course, organized by AIL Madrid and the editorial Edinumen, for teachers of Spanish as a foreign language.

This course is about ELE training with an emphasis on practical approaches, giving teachers the tools to achieve dynamic and effective classes in the 2016 classroom. We focus on skills need to facilitate work for oral and written production, provide ELE Teachers with the techniques for effective and cognitive management of Spanish learning/teaching resources, contrast different teaching methods through observation of an ELE class, and reflect on the importance of linguistic and paralinguistic values within oral expression. The course is broken into three modules: theoretical ELE training, observation of ELE classes, and an optional cultural program (for details on study topics for each of these modules, please see the course FAQ). The course objective is to be able to apply all new knowledge to the classroom, as well as holding a debate for participating teachers on the theoretic elements covered in the course guide. This participatory methodology allows you to display, share, and discuss experiences and the presentations of each topic. It also allows you to act as facilitators, allowing an interactive and constructive environment where teachers can learn from one another.
