2.  “Do It Yourself L.O.T.E.” Softcover A4 book 120pp intended for use by a unilingual generalist teacher with no previous experience in LOTE teaching.

The time required to use the course material will depend on the age and ability of the class and the frequency and duration of lessons. This could be as short as a ten-week intensive course of 2-3 hours per week with older students or as long as a whole year for younger students and/or less intensive schedules.

Each unit  contains a range of activity suggestions of varying complexity and the teacher may choose to work thoroughly through each entire unit in turn or use a spiralling teaching plan, covering all of the units at a basic level and then revising and extending in subsequent cycles.

At the end of this course, your class will be equipped to continue learning and using your LOTE through email  and postal correspondence, on-line courses, a wide variety of texts, workbooks, magazines and  literature. A comprehensive resource directory is provided at the back of this book.
