Practice of Language Teaching is the most practical subject in the TESOL program, where you employ the knowledge and skills previously gained in order to develop and cement your practical teaching skills and strategies. You will learn from experienced teachers in action, through focused observations and evaluating aspects of language lessons, learning and teaching. Students develop planning skills for delivering lessons in various educational contexts.
This subject also gives students a unique opportunity to undertake a Teaching Practicum (minimum 35hrs), during which they work with language students, under the supervision of an experienced teacher, in a real language learning and teaching institution. Depending on their prior qualifications, students will work in schools or language centres, augmenting their capacities for the most appropriate and relevant educational settings. Through reflective and collaborative practice, students gain on-going skills needed for becoming a dynamic teaching professional. This subject is typically completed at the final stages of your TESOL program.
