Language and Methodology Toolkit

Teaching in English when it is not your first language can present many opportunities but also many challenges, not least of all, the management of lectures and teaching situations. It can sometimes be difficult to put your finger on the language needed to explain your grading system, to reframe a students’ answer in an oral exam or to give constructive feedback. These cards have been designed to help with this and they cover a wide variety of situations that may arise when teaching in higher education. There is also space for you to note down your own words and phrases which may be specific to your own situation or domain. The cards also outline the main pillars of CLIL methodology (Content Language Integrated Learning), along with ideas and strategies which help to make your teaching more interactive, thereby supporting student learning.
