Practicum

Practicum
Teaching on your own to complete distance learning

If you are doing the Foundation TESOL Course online or by correspondence, you will be asked to do a 6-hour teaching practicum in order to supplement your coursework with in-class time.This practicum can be done at an ESL/EFL institution near you, such as an immigrant or refugee centre or a private language institute.

Certified teachers or those who have teaching experience can be exempted from this requirement, but can choose to do it anyway. Volunteer tutoring or teaching can also be useful for any students who would like to gain more experience in the classroom with English language learners before they teach overseas. If you have questions about the teaching practicum or would like to discuss strategies for doing one in your area, please phone the head office at: 1-888- 270-2941 or email: academic@globaltesol.com
