More Practice Hours With Real EFL Students:
We highly recommend that you take part in this 5-day Program. Live teaching practice in a real classroom environment is one of the final and most important steps to becoming an effective, successful instructor. Also, we cannot emphasize more how important it is to have these practices in as realistic an environment as possible. Unlike other teaching practice programs, we do not promote peer teaching, as it is not a realistic EFL setting.
During the Program:
You will teach since the first day you begin your program! You will be individually observed by several professional trainers, who will provide their feedback; you will work closely with a personal trainer who will assist you throughout the program. The schedule involves watching videos and completing tasks, lesson planning for your own classes featuring different levels and ages, observing other professors and of course, teaching real students. There is a grading system we follow and certain guidelines to successfully complete the course. Ask for details.
