Language Teaching


Language is a social function and develops through interaction and communicative necessity, with grammar describing the function as an afterthought. In educated speech the two activities weave in and out of each other with necessity being the driver of the whole learning process. In order to learn to speak confidently, therefore, activities should focus on real live situations and impulses, and make use of a controlled margin of stress(but not too much!) supplied by situations that prompt natural speech.

UTTA coursesaim to provide the requisite situational imperatives for natural learning, and also that they are linking in to the cultural features which add colour and flavour to different languages,that they are providing the natural idiom and cultural reference which makes the speaker identify and proxy-identify with native speakers to enable him or her to permeate the target society effectively.
