Delta Module One course – face-to-face
What is Delta Module One?
This module is more theoretical and focuses on language awareness, approaches and methods, evaluation of teaching resources and materials, and assessment of learner language and skills. It's tested in a written examination set by Cambridge English. The exam consists of two 90-minute papers which are taken on the same day. The exam takes place twice a year, in June and December.
When can I take a face-to-face course?
We offer a part-time face-to-face course comprising four weekends at fortnightly intervals. There's a spring course which prepares candidates for the June examination, and an autumn course which leads up to the exam in December.
Alternatively, if you do our Module Two full-time course, this also includes optional preparation for the Module One exam.
What are the dates for the next course?
Four weekends: 30-31 March, 13-14 April, 27-28 April, 11-12 May 2019
Exam date: 3 June 2019
What's the course fee?
It's 2950 PLN (2700 PLN for participants who have previously done a CELTA or Delta module course at our centre).
There's also a Cambridge exam fee, payable via the centre where you sit the exam. At our centre the current fee for candidates who do a Module One course with us is 650 PLN.
How is the course organized?
The daily schedule for each day of the course (Saturdays and Sundays) is as follows:
10:00 -12:00 Session 1
12:00 -12:30 Break
12:30 -14:30 Session 2
14:30 -15:30 Break
15:30 -17:00 Session 3
Sessions will include:
• input on key concepts and terminology in relation to language systems and skills, teaching approaches and methods, testing and assessment
• training in analysis and evaluation of classroom tasks, learner speaking and writing, authentic texts, language tests, published materials
• training in techniques for tackling the eight tasks in the Delta Module 1 exam
• guided and timed exam practice
• two full mock exams.
What's the workload like?
Course participants will also need to do a substantial amount of self-study work between the course weekends, as there will be homework tasks with a focus on research in key areas of methodology and language analysis, and exam tasks to be submitted by email and marked by the tutor. Although you can do a lot of the reading and study flexibly in your own time, you will need to follow the course timetable and hand in your work by the appointed deadlines each week.
The exact amount of time required will vary but participants should be ready to spend as much as 1-2 hours a day on coursework.
