Programme 9: Teacher reading

'Teaching reading' is a subject at the very heart of learning. What steps can we take to make students more confident readers? And how can we find a variety of materials - or 'texts' - for our students to read?

Programme 8: Teaching new language

This programme's topic is 'introducing new language' - introducing a grammar structure, a new tense or some vocabulary that the students haven’t been taught before. When we teach, we might do it in three stages: first we present, then we get our students to practise, and then to use the new language confidently and accurately. This is of course just one approach to introducing new language, but it’s one that many teachers find is a useful framework.

Programme 1: Planning your lessons

Programme 2: Teachers supporting each other

 Teaching and learning English by radioUN reports indicate that no less than 75 million learners still have limited or no access to schools and basic education (UNESCO 2009). Where schools are available, there are often real problems in terms of basic infrastructure, class sizes, teacher competence and access to ‘authentic English’, which is considered a vital component in language learning. Teaching English Radio helped address some of these very real challenges. Radio is a friendly and accessible medium that can communicate its message to the many teachers who work in locations beyond the reach of the internet. It is a highly effective medium for reaching large numbers of teachers and learners. With that in mind, this series was developed by the British Council in 2010.Radio broadcasts now onlineThe series was originally intended for broadcast by radio stations at times convenient for teachers. We are making this series available on TeachingEnglish in full as well, so any teacher with internet access can also enjoy the materials.Teacher support notes Each programme in this series is accompanied by a two-page teacher support sheet.
