PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

ETAs and LETs also work with trained TEFL (teaching English as a foreign language) advisors and local English professors who regularly conduct site visits, provide teaching workshops and trainings, and respond to bi-weekly teaching reports written by ETAs. 

 

TEACHING RESOURCES

In addition to providing on-site training through workshops and student teaching observations, our knowledgeable TEFL teacher training specialists provide online support for ETAs and their local counterparts. Our trainers launched a collaborative resource sharing and professional development website with lesson plans designed according to topic, grade, and textbook; US Department of State instructional videos on how to teach in a foreign language context, as well as engaging activities for English camps, English Village and Story time.
