TRAINING: EDUCATION & CULTURE

 

Our overseas in-class TESOL curriculum pulls from decades of international classroom research and experience, and is designed to teach you the most effective strategies and technniques to allow you to thrive in any ESL classroom.

XploreAsia’s in-class TESOL course focuses not only on teaching the four basic language skills (speaking, listening, reading, and writing), but we also focus on the most effective classroom management techniques, how to cater to learners of all ages, and how to plan, develop, and implement a full-semester curriculum.

Our experienced instructors apply all of the universal teaching methods to the local educational environments of Thailand, Myanmar, South Korea, and Vietnam to ensure that your success spans not only the classroom, but also the local culture.

We know that being a successful English teacher abroad isn’t just being prepared in the classroom though; it’s also having the ability to adapt to the local social and professional culture. That’s why our overseas in-class TESOL training and certification program combines the industry’s most comprehensive culture course, with experienced classroom instruction, and 2-3 days of instructor-observed teaching practice at a school for underprivileged children in the local community.

Weekly Breakdown

The first week of the XploreAsia overseas in-class TESOL course is an in-depth introduction to your host country, and the language. The following topics are covered: History & Society

  • History overview
  • Social Institutions
  • Gender relations
  • Major ethnic groups and relations
  • Regions of the country and distinctive local cultures

Geography

  • Neighboring countries and relations
  • Regions of the country

Politics

  • Political situation

Culture

Language

  • Basic introductions
  • Basic vocabulary
  • Vocabulary for shopping, bargaining, and communicating with students and colleagues.
Week Two
The second week of the overseas in-class TESOL course is when students will delve deeper into the theories and practices used in teaching English as a second language. Students will learn the practices for teaching a speaking lesson, how to implement grammar instruction into every lesson, and the structures and key elements of a lesson plan. Speaking Lesson? Conversational English skills are highly valued by schools, students, and parents in Asia, and the ability to effectively communicate in English opens up many professional opportunities for locals. It is because of these reasons that many schools want their foreign Native English speaking teachers to specialize in teaching speaking and listening skills. Learning how to effectively teach a speaking lesson will be one of the first things we explore in the second week of the course. Lesson plan? Every lesson requires a detailed lesson plan that lays out the procedures of the class, and also forces the teachers to consider the challenges, technology, resources, and other factors that can have an impact on success in the classroom. Grammar During week two, students will also learn how to teach grammar. We will start off with a quick, but in-depth grammar refresher, since many native English speakers may not have reviewed grammar in longer time than we would like to admit!
Week Three
The third week of the overseas in-class TESOL course focuses on how to teach reading, listening, and young learners. Reading is an extremely beneficial activity for ESL learners for many reasons including, being a good model for language production, increasing vocabulary, highlighting definitions within a context, etc. While teaching reading may seem pretty straightforward, believe it or not, there is actually a strategy for how to teach reading effectively. It involves building key reading skills and practicing with students to hone and improve those skills. Many of the skills and strategies that come with teaching reading are similar to that of teaching listening, another topic we will cover extensively during week 3. Week three is when we will also take a look at the most effective strategies, techniques, and activities for teaching young learners. Our course is designed to prepare you to teach learners of any age or ability.
Week Four
The final week of the overseas in-class TESOL course is dedicated to studying classroom management, and preparing for, and conducting the non-profit English camp. Although classroom management is one of the last topics covered, it is essential to classroom success, especially in cross-cultural contexts. During week 4, we will examine what makes effective classroom management, the primary reasons students misbehave, and also strategies and tactics for dealing with undesirable behavior. During Week 4, we will also examine the most effective techniques for assessing students. We will look at the different types of tests you should conduct with your classes, discuss the best times to give tests, and talk about how you can use test results to better future teaching. Week 4 is also when we look at how to create and develop a curriculum. Our course is designed to not only provide instruction on how to create successful single lessons, but also how to string those lessons, topics, and activities together into a seamless and comprehensive curriculum that can be used throughout the length of a quarter or semester.

Colleen Instructors & coordinators were great resources for advice on this huge culture change. Seeing/hearing all of their stories gave me the confidence that I can do this & change my life. The TESOL course allowed me to make great friendships, while adapting to life here.

Jordan So far this experience has been amazing. I feel like I have made life-long friends with people I really admire. Thailand already feels like a very special place to me. I think I’ll fit in well here!
