This section emphasizes current trends in the communicative approach and student-centered classroom practices.Module 2: Curriculum and Materials Design

In addition, course books are reviewed and examined in order to understand how to use them effectively while supplementing them with outside resources and materials -focusing on first-hand experience with educational technology.
In this practical module, traditional and innovative classroom strategies and techniques for teaching the four skills (listening, reading, speaking and writing) are presented with an integrative view of language teaching and communication. Discussions center on the role of the teacher, the needs of the learner, the development of materials and the urge to replicate authentic naturalistic interaction.Module 4: Describing Learners and Teachers
In this module, the multi-faceted characteristics of the learners and the teachers in different language learning contexts are discussed. Participants identify how to develop strategies for dealing with different types of behavioral problems, students’ motivation, and student autonomy. The module facilitates reflection on differentiated instruction (DI) and the adjustments teachers of a foreign language should do to foster successful language learning.
In this module, the main concepts related to assessment and evaluation of language learning processes are spotted. Main components of alternative assessment tools and rubrics to measure the progress of the learner are debated to facilitate objective learning evaluation. Additionally, error and effective feedback techniques are presented so participants understand the cycle of assessment for learning.Module 6: Linguistics
This module covers fundamentals in linguistics and English language structure. Phonology, morphology, and syntax are discussed with an emphasis on how language functions as a means of communication.
This transversal module facilitates participants’ reflection on teaching English while experiencing teaching in a real-life context. During the different modules, participants are guided in different reflective teaching practices such as class observation, co-teaching and journal record-keeping and design and implementation of a real class activity.
