The Language of Engagement – Moving EAL Learners from Oral to Writing Tasks

Discover how you can support English as an Additional Language (EAL) learners to extend their existing spoken language knowledge and build their mastery to experience success in writing tasks.

In the 21st century, there has been a massive transformation in teaching English due to the ongoing refugee crisis and globalisation of migration. This often leads to frequent dilemmas faced by teachers in choosing the right teaching pedagogy and methodology to ensure optimum engagement for EAL students.

As speech is the first skill to develop in our EAL learners, participants will gain insights on how they can build on and use this knowledge to move their EAL students to progress along the register continuum to produce and experience success in written work.

This online course will allow participants to:

  • Discover - how TALKING can be utilised to help EAL students WRITE;
  • Deconstruct - concepts for pre-, during and post writing activities;
  • Develop - existing repertoire of practical EAL pedagogies and strategies.
