Free Online Course for EFL Teachers: Content-Based Instruction - April 18, 2022

Designed by Azhar Youssef


This course is designed for teachers who are already teaching content-based instruction (CBI). We define CBI as instruction where the content (which could be maths, history, science, etc.) is taught in English as a foreign language (EFL). CBI courses present teachers with the challenge of balancing the teaching of both language and content. The ideal way to strike this balance will differ, depending on the teaching context. This MOOC was designed to prepare participants for future decision-making and problem-solving in the area of CBI.
