3.02.900 Ü The Primary ELT Classroom - Teaching English to Beginners


  • Donnerstag: 18:00 - 20:00, wöchentlich


The Modules PH 043 and PH 054 "Englisch im Anfangsunterricht" are designed to help prepare students aiming for the elementary school (1st-4th grades) to teach English.

They are for students who are NOT majoring in English, but who expect to teach English as the classroom teacher.

This course is one of two practically-oriented courses taught in English in the module. Both of them will focus on a) the English used in an elementary classroom, and b) means and methodology of teaching a foreign language orally to younger children. The course will also deal with the bureaucratic and theoretical background of English teaching in the elementary school, and with the resulting necessary form and aims of this teaching.
In addition, the participants' English will be evaluated in the first course, and each student will be counseled, so that she or he can make any necessary improvements in this area. Please note that you do not have to be able to speak English perfectly to take part in this course! (Regular school English is enough.)

Finally, at the end of the module, there will be a general evaluation of your skills in English for teaching elementary pupils, so that you can show proof of these skills to a potential employer.

Please note that the Module PH043 has a theoretical component as well, which is a lecture course on the didactics of teaching English as a foreign language. PH 054 is only composed of the two practical English-based courses. Both modules take 2 semesters to complete.
