Associates Carol Woodford (USA) and Anita Green (GBR) offer a certified course in TESOL (teaching English to speakers of other languages) in Tianjin. The course content includes lesson planning, classroom management, grammar, pronunciation, reading, writing, speaking, listening, and more. Those who successfully complete the course will receive a TESOL certificate from International Training Network in the UK (see www.itnuk.com).
There are two formats for the TESOL course: an intensive format that meets all day Monday to Friday for three weeks, and a non-intensive format that meets Tuesday/Thursday evenings and Saturday afternoons for ten weeks. Both formats offer 100 hours of training, including about 25 hours of teaching practice.
The course welcomes both Jian Hua associates and non-associates, although candidates must complete an interview and application process. For more details, including course costs, contact Carol Woodford, carol.woodford(at)jhf-china.org
