Pre-Course Task

When you apply to do a Delta course, you are usually asked to complete a Pre-Course Task. For some training centres, this might form part of your application, for others it is more of a task to get you thinking before beginning the course. For some centres it will be used for both of the above. Very often its purpose is to function as a bridge between the application process and the start of the course.

The whole idea behind Delta is to re-evaluate your teaching and the principles behind it. As such, the Pre-Course Task usually gets you:

  • To think about how you understand what learning is and what it involves
  • To think about how you understand what teachingis and what it involves

More often than not, the above requires you to consider:

  • Activities you use in class and why you use them
  • Experience with various ELT methods
  • Reflection on your own language learning or learning in general
  • Second Language Acquisition theory
