Course Materials

Trainees will be provided materials for the following areas of the course:

 Teaching Skills
 Language Awareness
 Phonetics
 Classroom Management

These high quality materials are the basis for the input sessions and will provide trainees with valuable reference resources throughout their teaching career.

Although the center provides handbooks and materials for the course, you will need two A4 (11×8.5) folders, which should be organized as follows:

1. The Course Log

A: Teaching Practice
lesson plans, materials & assessment

B: Lesson Observation Journal
Report for each lesson

This forms a record of the course and should be tidy and professional in appearance. It will be inspected during moderation.

2. Your Own Notes File

During input sessions, you will receive numerous handouts and may want to take your own notes as well. We suggest dividing the file under the following headings:

 Timetable
 Classroom management
 Teaching skills
 Grammar
 Phonology

Please Note:

Punctuality is essential. Arriving on time is a vital quality in a teacher.
