Что такое CELTA

Предлагаю познакомиться с CELTA.

CELTA обозначает Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.

CELTA is an initial qualification for people with little or no previous teaching experience and is the most widely taken qualification of its kind. CELTA opens up a whole world of exciting English language teaching opportunities.

Проще говоря, это первый сертификат для преподавателя иностранного языка из возможных. Хочешь преподавать и нет опыта — иди учиться и получи сертификат.

Одна из моих коллег некоторое время преподавала в Гомеле в группе взрослых, целью которых было овладеть языком для элементарного общения в англоговорящей стране.Методы преподавания абсолютно иные. Со слов коллеги — авторские (чьи-то авторские, не коллеги). Возможно, в преподавании было нечто от той методики, о которой сейчас идёт речь.

Почтитать об этом экзамене можно в ЗДЕСЬ.

А как строится урок по данной методике? Нашла урок на одном хорошем сайте, который периодически читаю и, признаться, часто подпитываюсь его энергетикой и идеями. Чем интересен план? Своей коммуникативной направленностью. (Мы делаем то же самое? Не соглашусь.)

В плане указывается неделя изучения и день недели, а также продолжительность урока — 40 минут, уровень обучения (elementary) и тема урока (Food and Drinks).

Цели урока формулируются так (сравните с нашими целями и задачами — видите, куда мы ушли?):

AIMS: By the end of the lesson, students will have…

Main: to be able to order food and drink in a bar or caf?

Subsidiary: students will have practiced polite request offers with the modal verb “can”
Subsidiary: students will have used the consequent items of vocabulary concerning food and drink: a chicken salad, a tuna salad, an egg salad, fish, chips, pizza, a chocolate cake, an apple pie, ice-cream, coffee, tea, mineral water, orange juice
Subsidiary: students will have learnt the names of currencies and price values and used them ordering food in a cafe: a pound (GBP) vs. a penny, a euro (EU) vs. a cent, a dollar (USD) vs. a cent, a hryvna (UAH) vs. a kopeck
Subsidiary: students will have got aware of intonation difference in polite requests patterns and wh-questions

Учитель в плане урока ставит цели для себя (мы этого не делаем, хотя вроде каждый внутренне их представляет):

a)  To sit down more
b)  To give clearer instructions
c)  To avoid a teacher-centered approach
d)  To make an eye-contact with all the students
e)   To avoid echoing
f)    To monitor the class more effectively

Когда мы пишем план, мы представляем себе контингент, с которым нам предстоит работать. Посмотрите, как это делает преподаватель:


1)   The class is a multilingual class of adults, more or less unused to the communicative teaching approach
2)   Totally the class has 12 people but 7-8 students are constantly present
3)   The number of ladies – 6, the number of gentlemen – 2
4)  They are all Ukrainian
5)  The strongest students are Lena and Helen
6)  They have both intrinsic motivation for studying a language: the intrinsic aim includes job opportunities and travelling
7)   Their interests are varied: travelling, making photos, cooking, pet-breeding, sports
8)   The students are extroverted and self-encourages, so, the dynamics of the class is pretty high, but new-comers can break it down while being late

Что ещё? Прогнозирование.


a)  The students will know about the article usage difference “a/an”
b)  The students will have a basic knowledge of some vocabulary items having an analogical equivalent in their native language, but I am planning to elicit that from them
c)  The students have already revised the cardinal numbers in the previous classes
d) The majority of students like travelling and cooking, so their interest will be in direct relation to the material of the class
e)  The ladies will be more knowledgeable about foodstuff
f)   The students have also revised personal pronouns that can help not to concentrate on them

Предполагаемые проблемы и пути их решения в ходе занятия также просчитываются преподавателем:


Problem 1: students can be confused about long instructions
Solution 1: use precise language patterns as well as gestures and mime

Problem 2: confusion about long irrelevant pauses between activities
Solution 2:  preparing the set of tools for activities beforehand

Problem 3: some students may be late for the class
Solution 3: greeting and letting them get involved into activities

Далее пишется непосредственно сам план урока. Насколько я понимаю, так расписывает план урока обучающийся для получения CELTA.
