Your studies will commence in the first year with the necessary foundations of education and knowledge in the teaching profession. You will be exposed to the major theories and principles of teaching in general. You will also be introduced to the organization of the school and its curriculum. The foundation work will continue into the second year where you will be exposed to practical skills in teaching English to second and foreign-language speakers. In the third year, you will be provided with the opportunity to experience hands-on researching, planning, preparing and teaching in a mock classroom. In Practicum I (School Orientation Program), you will be placed in the school to experience the management, organization, and culture of school and classroom teaching. In the fourth year after completing the courses, you will once again be placed in a school for one semester for your teaching practicum supervised by experienced teachers, school administrators and university supervisors. Besides teaching skills, the TESL program also equips you with research knowledge and skills, preparing you for postgraduate studies or for a career as a researcher.
