English for Job Interviews (Teacher Book)

English for Job Interviews (Teacher Book) This teacher book accompanies a student workbook.
We designed the workbook for intermediate to lower advanced level students (B2 and C1 on the
European scale) but can be used by lower intermediate levels with guidance from a teacher.  
The workbook can be used as self‐study, but was originally created to be used in class with a
teacher. Each of its 5 parts has a lesson plan, which can be expanded or changed as preferred.
Each part takes approximately 90 minutes with the discussion exercises and role‐plays described
below, or 20‐40 minutes in self‐study.
We’ve avoided giving lists of phrases or words to memorise and parrot back. Instead, the
workbook focuses on helping the students reflect on the best responses and create a more
personal reply, which they can then write down and review.For the open questions, the questions are asked first and then the ‘answers’ in the form of notes
or tips are given on a following pages

NeuroELT: Language Learning and The Brain

NeuroELT: Language Learning and The Brain Neuroscience is changing the world. It is unraveling the mysteries of the very most basic elements of our profession – language, learning, and culture – and yet, because these findings are so new, they have not made much impact on our field yet. We wish, as language teachers ourselves, to change that. Let's look at how the brain processes emotion, memory, and meaning, and examine ways we can apply these findings to our classrooms.

This is a self-study course based on a one-month intensive iTDi Advanced Teaching Skills course. It includes four video recordings, readings, and discussion questions. Teachers who would like a certificate of completion verifying 20 Professional Development hours are required to submit written responses to the discussion questions.
