TEACHING ENGLISH TO SPEAKERS OF OTHER LANGUAGES (TESOL)
The demand for Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) is exploding in many nations as English has become the primary language of international commerce and electronic communications. The TESOL will equip you to serve and reach out to people both locally and around the world that need or want to learn English. It provides tools and skills to reach most closed nations and hardest to reach peoples of the world.
The TESOL in YWAM Harpenden is a 6-weeks seminar that trains people to teach English and gives a professional Certificate of qualification in TESOL to graduates. Graduates are well-equipped as English teachers to work professionally locally or overseas; to meet the huge demand for the English language.
Graduates from the TESOL seminar may have the opportunity to join future overseas outreaches with YWAM England, teaching English overseas.
This intensive course includes 200 hours of class time and 30+ hours of practice teaching and classroom observation. It provides training on lesson design, second language acquisition, materials development, evaluation, in addition to theories and practical application of teaching speaking, reading, writing, listening, grammar and pronunciation.
Personal laptop computers are required. They are used extensively for assignments, lesson planning, instruction and research. The internet is surveyed daily for pertinent information. Students will be provided opportunities for practice-teaching with non-native English speakers. This course is interactive and focuses on balance between the academic and the practical.
