In-Class Course Outline (4 weeks)
The course is administered using the 5 following core components:
- Teaching practice
This is the most fundamental area of our TESOL course. The trainees teach Vietnamese students of English, put into practice the skills learnt on the course and receive immediate feedback from the trainer after each observed lesson.
- Foreign Language Experience
The trainees receive training in an unknown foreign language to reflect on the experience of being a learner, and how this might direct their own teaching.
- Language Awareness
- Teaching techniques
This component of the course covers the main areas related to classroom management, lesson preparation, teaching skill such as: reading, writing, listening, speaking, vocabulary, etc.
- Materials project
All trainees must develop two sets of materials used during the teaching practice to present to the trainers on how the materials were used, how they could be improved and might be used in another context.
