Gain confidence and skills in communication and proficiency in language teaching and learning.


Theories of Language Learning

Most foreign language teaching does not result in competence or confidence because it is test-driven instead of results driven. In this Course, Students explore the underlying reasons why constructivist approaches work and rote learning does not. They work together to identify the downfalls of traditional language learning theories. Together they explore differentiated instruction addressing individual learning styles. Language learning becomes intentional, explicit, focused and systematic.

Multimedia Language Teaching

Learners tend to hesitate to speak when learning a new language because they have been conditioned to fear making mistakes. In this Course, Students use multimedia tools to build interactive exercises which provide immediacy of feedback and correct predictable repetitive mistakes that are caused by first language bleed-through. Computer-assisted technology naturally integrates auditory, visual, and kinesthetic cues and provides opportunities to practice listening and speaking without time pressure, bridging the gap between 'almost' knowing and fluency.

Communication Vision and Mission

While everyone may have a passion and a vision, for many of us it is not easy to communicate our ideas in words and communicate them effectively or, perhaps we have a profound fear of speaking in public or on video. In this Course, Students practice presenting themselves as a communicator, become engaging as a speaker, and develop a confident public voice. When we speak powerfully and articulate our passion eloquently, we gain support for our ideas and light up our audience at the same time.
