A 3 week, 15 hour, free online course over 4 weekends to encourage participants to help the reflective practitioner understand the importance of using functional language appropriately. Participants will be encouraged to reflect on:
- what a language function is;
- how language functions compare to grammar;
- how learners can express different language functions in English;
- and reflect on ways that functional language can be integrated into one's daily teaching practice.

Just click on the course title, follow the instructions and confirmation will be sent on Friday, 17th January. Numbers are limited to 40 participants, so please do NOT request a place if you think you may not have enough free time. NB: ONE course per registered user!
