The TESOL Certificate Program is designed for teachers of English as a Foreign Language who want to continue their professional development, for professionals in Canada considering a career change, for international students who wish to be trained as teachers of the English language, and for recent college graduates who want to travel and teach abroad. Certificate candidates receive intensive academic training and take part in relevant professional and cultural experiences, all within a six-week period of instruction.
The program provides an integrated curriculum of courses, workshops, and supervised student teaching organized around six, one-week units
Discuss theories on the origins of language; compare writing systems; experience how sounds are produced (phonology), how sound patterns make up the English language (phonetics), how words are formed (morphology), sentences are structured (syntax), meaning is conveyed (semantics) and languages are used (pragmatics).
Talk about how languages are learned, how the four skills (reading, writing, listening & speaking) fit into a model of communicative competence, and what all of this means for designing classroom activities and assessing student performance.
Learn how to plan lessons, design activities, and assess learners. Become familiar with techniques for promoting interaction, providing feedback, utilizing textbooks, developing one’s own materials, dealing with mixed ability level groups, incorporating strategy training in lessons, and managing a classroom.
