Viewing in Language Teaching


In the English language curricula of a number of countries – for example, Canada, Australia and Singapore – a new skill of viewing has been added to the traditional skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking. Undoubtedly, this new skill of viewing will be integrated into national curricula throughout the world in the near future. On this course teachers learn what viewing is, why it is important in language teaching and how to help their students become more active and effective viewers. There are a total of twenty contact hours. The course language is English but the course is suitable for teachers of other languages.
