TEC (Teachers of English Course) is a teacher development course for practising teachers of English from all over the world, who would like to improve their English for professional and personal reasons. Participants will develop and explore aspects of teaching methodology and teaching techniques and learn to assess and make us of a variety of teaching aids and resources. This is also a key opportunity to share and discuss experiences of teaching with other teachers from all over the world.
TEC courses are intensive 2 and 4-week courses, and are offered at our school in San Francisco. There is no formal assessment, but participants may opt to prepare for Cambridge TKT. At the end of the course, all participants receive a certificate of attendance and a Teachers of English Course certificate.
The main elements of the course are:
- Language development
- The background to language learning and teaching
- Different methodologies for teaching
- Classroom management and practical teaching skills
- Lesson planning
- Teaching resources and aid
- Observation of experienced teachers
However, these courses are designed to be flexible, and can be adapted to suit the specific needs of participants.
