DELTA Assignments


I’ve always found it very useful to see models of an assignment, besides the assignment description to understand what is expected. This is why I’ve decided to make my DELTA (Diploma in Teaching English to Speakers of other Languages) assignments public.

On this page you will find a list of links leading to my Cambdrige DELTA assingments (PDF files) from 2007. The main purpose for publishing them is to help DELTA candidates by providing them with models for the assignments. Each stage of the assignments is in a separate file and can be downloaded individually.

If you are not a DELTA candidate, the background assignments might still be interesting for you to read about the theory and practice of language teaching and learning. The bibliography can be found at the end of each background assignment.

* The Worksheets are my product but some exercises and samples are reproductions from published Course or Workbooks. You can find the reference on top of the first page of the Top Sheets.

Important: The listed assignments all got a distinction so are safe to be taken as models. However, remember that plagiarism is not a good idea. Universities have powerful plagiarism detection tools. Also, you want to be proud of your own work, don’t you? 🙂

Note: I completed the course in 2007 at ITTC in Bournemouth, UK. Shortly after, DELTA courses became modular and, very likely, the assignments have changed as well. So, decide for yourself how much of this is still relevant and useful.
