Teaching English for Specific Purposes (ESP)

This course is being offered within the scope of the BA and MA modules in foreign language teaching. In addition to a grounding in the established methodologies developed in the field of ESP for the design and implementation of special courses in English for adults, the group will also undertake the collaborative design of a short intensive course for THW (Technisches Hilfswerk) volunteers, who have to use English as their lingua franca when they participate in life-saving missions abroad.
That intensive course will be run from Friday through Sunday on the weekend of July 4-6 2014. Students wishing to actually participate in the running of the course at the THW training center near Koblenz should sign up in the corresponding Ilias course entitled THW LEHRPRAKTIKUM that can be found under FTSK/Amerikanistik/Kiraly for the SS. As the course and facilities at the THW training center will allow for only a limited number of teacher/tutors, a selection will have to be made during the first week of the semester from among those who have signed up on Ilias. Plans are to have eight students participate as teacher/tutors.
During the preparatory course itself, we will first learn how courses in English for Special Purposes can be effectively designed and implemented. We will then look specifically at the linguistic needs and background of our prospective students: THW volunteers who serve in disaster situations abroad. We will view films of these volunteers in action and discern the types of linguistic input and practice that they need to improve their English skills while on mission. The primary objective of the preparatory course and the Lehrpraktikum is clearly to enable FTSK students to design and implement similar courses in a variety of settings in the future. In addition, the intensive course to be taught in the THW training center will be an authentic course designed to make a contribution to the communicative readiness of THW volunteers in real disaster situations.
Please note: this course will require the intensive proactive participation of every member of the course! The students will work together, and with the lecturer's assistance, as an investigative team to learn the principles of teaching ESP, and you will work together as a creative course design team to create an effective course and help the teacher/tutors prepare themselves to teach the THW intensive course in July.
