A component of the Faculty's Pre-service EFL teacher-training programme, this is one more course that builds on the knowledge and skills that students developed by having successfully completed, in previous semesters, two relevant core courses (Applied Linguistics to Foreign Language Teaching and Learning; ELT Methods and Practices). Its purpose is threefold. Firstly, it aims at providing trainees with the opportunity to take the position of an informed observer in an EFL classroom in a Greek school and to systematically follow and reflect on the processes of teaching and learning therein.
This course, offered in the 7th semester, is a core component of the Pedagogic and Teaching Competence Programme and a compulsory course for those students who are seeking the Certificate of Pedagogic and Teaching Competence. This course builds on the knowledge and skills that students developed in previous semesters two relevant core courses: Applied Linguistics to Foreign Language Teaching and Learning and ELT Methods and Practices offered (in the 5th and 6th semester respectively).
The aim of the Course is to present the principles of Teaching English for Specific Purposes (or TESP), with reference to different teaching contexts (e.g., English for general and specific academic purposes, English for general and specific occupational, vocational, or business purposes, etc.), as well as the close ties between TESP and the disciplines of adult education and differentiated instruction and learning. Particular emphasis is placed on raising a practical awareness of different teaching contexts, as well as of the various types of needs analysis conducted.
