Skip to 0 minutes and 9 secondsHi, everyone. Welcome to week four of the course, and it's actually the final week. And hasn't it gone quickly? This week we're going to talking about teaching language, aren't we? We are. For example. We're going to talk about how we can set context online. Yeah, you're going to give us an example of flipping the classroom. I am. And we're also going to think about practising language online as well, with some useful tools that learners can use. Yeah, and then the second part of the week we're talking about how to set up your own business. And all of those questions I asked last week, I hope will be answered.

Skip to 0 minutes and 36 secondsAnd then we'll end by thinking about professional development, because it can be a bit lonely as an online teacher can't it? Absolutely. But there are places you can go and things you can do to continually develop your practice and so on, improve your teaching. So enjoy the last week, everyone.

Welcome to week 4

Welcome to week 4, our final week of the course. This week we’ll focus on planning and delivering effective language lessons online, how to set up and run an online teaching business and ways that online teachers can develop their professional skills beyond this course.

Outline of week 4

This week we’ll answer these questions:

  • How can we set context in online language lessons?

  • How can we flip our online classroom to allow for more practice in a lesson?

  • How can we adapt activities and exploit tools to provide sufficient practice of language?

  • How can we get our online business started?

  • How can we attract and keep students?

  • How can we continue to develop our online teaching skills beyond this course?

The tasks this week will take you around four hours. There is an optional task of creating a video for a flipped lesson. You’ll need to set aside more time for this task.

We’re looking forward to our final week with you and very much hope you enjoy it.
