The aim of this unit is to provide knowledge and skills to help deal effectively with learners for whom the mainstream medium of instruction is a second or additional language. Given the importance of English both locally and internationally and the increasing flow of people in the globalised economy, every teacher is engaged to a greater or lesser extent in bilingual education or second or additional language teaching. This elective looks at how teaching in English-medium schools can be structured to meet the language needs of learners for whom it is a second or additional language and to enhance the cross-cultural understanding and skills of all.
