Teacher Observations:
Throughout the course, you will observe several experienced teachers' lessons and analyze aspects of their classroom interaction and teaching styles.

You will focus a sympathetic yet critical eye on various facets of their instruction: student-teacher interaction, error correction methods, use of materials, pacing and use of whiteboard, to name but a few.

Throughout this two-month course, you will be meeting with one or two tutorial subjects for a minimum total ot 10 teaching hours.

The purpose of these structured one-on-one sessions is to allow you to gain some experience planning lessons, instructing students and practicing most other aspects of language instruction in the relative security of a less public setting.

It will also provide you with an immediate opportunity to put into practice the theories, ideas, and methods you will read and learn about throughout this course.
