TEACHING-LEARNING METHODOLOGY

This course focuses on the learner’s ability to solve problems and think critically about authentic texts in English
common to everyday situations. A problem/task-based approach will allow learners to become aware of grammatical
structure by integrating listening, speaking, reading, writing, grammar, and vocabulary. The instructor’s role facilitates
the process of transitioning the English language learner from dependency to independency to interdependency so to
promote higher degrees of autonomous learning. Throughout the course, the development of learning strategies will be
integrated throughout various forms of activities such as debates, informal discussions, Socratic seminars, etc. using a
variety of interactional patterns to achieve learning outcomes: independent work, pair work, and work in small groups.
