Course Description

In the typical timetable, the English teacher has lots of aspects of the language to cover. So is there really time for Extensive Reading? The answer is yes! This course stresses the fact that Extensive Reading, or ER, is an indispensable part of learning a language. It offers repeated exposure to large amounts of English in a way that no other aspect of the timetable can. 

The course covers the following topics: What is Extensive Reading? How can it help learners to learn English more effectively? How can it be integrated into a school learning programme so that it becomes a natural part of language learning?
