Get TESOL certified world-wide with IEERA

Postby G8way_2_China » Sun, 08 Jun 2008 01:59:27 -0500

The International English Educational Research Association's (IEERA) TESOL Certification Program is an intensive course which provides participants with professional knowledge and skills in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) as well as tools for their own reflection and growth as teachers. It is designed to be offered intensively in four weeks or extensively over a longer period.

The course provides practical training through teaching demonstrations, lesson planning and analysis, and practice teaching and feedback. Participants develop skills in teaching, speaking, listening, reading, writing, grammar and culture. The course begins with a brief look at second language acquisition through the experience of being a learner. Participants then examine specific teaching areas each day, which they apply in their daily practice teaching of adult ESOL learners. Participants gain skills in analysis through examining their lessons with IEERA teacher trainers.

The innovative course curriculum was designed by IEERA faculty, based on humanistic, experiential, and progressive teaching.

The IEERA International TESOL Certification Program focuses on three main areas:

Participants engage in a language-learning experience in order to explore the relationship between language learning, teaching, and aspects of second language acquisition from the point of view of the learner. This experience provides the foundation for the examination of teaching practices.

Participants examine the theory and practice of planning, teaching, grammar, culture, and assessing lessons in the four skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing) through experiential activities, teaching demonstrations, discussions, lesson planning, materials development and readings.

Classroom practices
Participants put their new knowledge and skills into practice through daily teaching sessions. Trainers observe and facilitate feedback sessions after these lessons. Participants learn to reflect on and assess their own teaching as well as to examine the teaching of their peers.

The IEERA's International TESOL Certificate is recognized worldwide. Graduates find
challenging teaching positions in the U.S. and abroad, or return to their current jobs with
new skills and greater knowledge, awareness, and satisfaction. To facilitate networking,
