Teaching English Internationally 1 (EDGU2000)


The rapid expansion of English as a global language has led to a demand for graduates across a range of disciplines to have skills and expertise in English language teaching. This unit aims to introduce the theory and practice of teaching English both in Australia to international students and overseas in a range of primary, secondary and tertiary contexts. The unit is run in conjunction with the Centre for English Teaching and involves lectures by CET staff and lesson observations.
