2. Foreign Language Experience:
The trainees receive training in an unknown foreign language to reflect on the experience of being a learner, and how this might direct their own teaching.

3. Language Awareness:
- Phonology. Covers phonemics, word stress and intonation, sentence stress and intonation, rhythm and intonation, and connected speech.
- Grammar. Covers word classes, simple sentence elements, complex sentences and clauses, verb time and tense, aspect and conditionals and modals, phrasals and voice.

4. Student Profile:
Trainees work with individual students on rapport-building, error analysis and correction and addressing individual student needs. Three meetings with the student are required including transcription and error analysis of audio and written samples, culminating in a 60-minute session observed by a trainer.

5. Teaching Techniques:
This component of the course covers areas such as: Classroom management; Managing equipment and teaching aids; Lesson planning; Establishing rapport; Discipline in the classroom; Teaching productive skills (speaking and writing); Teaching receptive skills (reading and listening); Teaching vocabulary; Teaching grammar; Correction techniques; Evaluation and testing; Games in the classroom; Teaching beginner students; Teaching individual students; Teaching business English; Teaching young learners among other subjects.

6. Materials Project:
All trainees must develop two sets of materials used during the teaching practice. Each set must be durable, capable of being used for more than one lesson context and easily portable. The materials may include visuals, realia, audio or video tape, cue cards and class handouts, but may not be photocopied from published sources.

Trainees are required to adapt from commercial sources, or develop original materials. The summation of this project is a presentation to the trainers on how the materials were used, how they could be improved and how they might be used in another context.
