Description This course addresses the needs of more advanced EAL learners. They may have been in the UK for some years or have been born here and present as fluent in conversation, but they are not achieving because there are gaps in their knowledge of how academic language works in English. This course provides successful approaches to integrating a language focus into all classrooms.
