Based on LCNV’s almost 60-year history of teaching adult English learners and on current best practices, LCNV proudly offers Adult ESOL Instructor Basics. This 2-part training will equip you with the principles, strategies and tools you need to teach beginning-level English to adults of immigrant or refugee background.

In addition to learning effective practices for teaching in a virtual setting, you will learn to:

  • Recognize and leverage the characteristics and strengths of adult learners
  • Give clear instructions for tasks and provide feedback strategically
  • Adapt textbook materials for literacy-level learners and multilevel classes
  • Integrate and contextualize language skills (listening, speaking, reading, and writing; vocabulary, grammar, and pronunciation) for community, work, and school success
  • Promote a supporting learning environment for culturally and linguistically diverse students
