Welcome History Students!

Description of the Study of Civilizations course 

 

This Study of Civilizations course aims to provide you with a broader cultural background which will serve as an important tool in your English language teaching. As educators, it is imperative to have some background knowledge about the events and personages that helped shape our world and make it what it is today. Particularly in ELT, much of this historical information is used or referred to in reading, listening, discussion and writing activities seen in present-day English textbooks.  Of course, it is not possible to cover all aspects of thousands of years of history, however; I can introduce some of the major themes and places that have relevance in history. It is hoped that this sparks additional interest so that you will be inspired to find out more, and  that this  will only be the beginning of an adventurous learning experience.
