Changing Structure of English Curriculum


There is growing evidence that the “linear” English languages courses are declining in usage in favor of more clustered materials and returning to the same basic sources when learning.

Fueled both by a demand for more efficient and faster delivery and more improvements being made constantly in the field  there is a gradual shift being made from the traditional course structure which flows almost like a line, leading from one point to another consecutively. A “sequence” of education is presumed to have been followed by the students, allowing them to progress from stage to stage.

However  as educational bodies learn more about the way young students learn language  it has been found increasingly that  as more sources and learning techniques become available  teachers have greater potential to respond to the particular needs of their students  and greater flexibility to tailor their classes in a way which would facilitate their pupils’ learning the English language.
