Delta Module 1 Courses

 

exam

This course aims to prepare candidates who wish to take the Delta assessment by preparing Module by Module – one step at a time.

In order to take the exam, it is advised that you follow a course such as the one organised by our centre, or an integrated course which covers all three modules.

The course syllabus and description of the examination and its content can be reviewed in the Cambridge Handbook for all modules which you can read online here or download and read offline.

In any case, in order to follow a Module 2 course, rather than an integrated Delta course, at our centre, we require that you have taken and passed Module 1.

What you will cover in Module One

This module focuses on extending and developing candidates’ knowledge and understanding of teaching and learning English in a range of contexts.

The table below gives a brief summary of the content.

Topics Content
1. Theoretical perspectives on language acquisition and language teaching
  • Historical and current theories of first and second language acquisition
  • How these theories influence teaching methodologies.
2. Different teaching approaches and methodologies, including current developments
  • Teaching methodologies, both mainstream and experimental
  • The effectiveness of these methodologies in different learning environments.
3. Language systems and learners’ linguistic problems
  • Features of language systems (e.g. meaning, form, pronunciation and use)
  • Teaching methodology choices in language systems.
4. Language skills and learners’ problems
  • Features of language skills (e.g. the subskills and strategies needed by learners)
  • Teaching methodology choices in language skills.
5. Knowledge of resources, materials and reference sources for language learning
  • The practical uses of a range of resources in a range of teaching contexts.
6. Key assessment concepts and terminology
  • How to apply key assessment principles, such as validity and reliability, to classroom-based assessment.

  • Is your English good enough to teach at a range of levels? (Minimum CEFRLevel C1–C2 or above.)

Where the course will take place

The course is delivered fully and only online (please note that we do not accept Module 1 only candidates on our intensive and integrated 3-modules courses).

The input sessions take place in our state-of-the-art online live classroom where you can interact live with your tutor and fellow participants who may be in the same country as you or halfway across the world!!!

To participate in the webinars, you will need a fast connection, a headset and a webcam.  A good headset is very important for online learning as input cannot be processed if the sound quality is poor and you are struggling to follow conversations!

You will also have access to other platforms for resources and to communicate with assignment drafts, receive feedback and upload your work.

To see more about what the online platforms we use can do and what they are intended for, please click on this link to watch a short video from an online presentation.
