You are assigned a personal tutor as soon as you enrol, who will give you help and guidance through the course as well as mark your assignments and give you personal feedback.
Practicum is an essential component to a teacher’s training process, as it provides valuable insight and experience prior to obtaining independent teaching positions. WCL requires that all students accumulate a minimum of 6 hours for TEFL/TESOL certification. These hours can be achieved through observation, tutoring, student teaching or a combination of 2 or 3 of these in an ESL/EFL setting in which non-native speakers are learning new English language skills.
Our three learning blocks enable us to mark you fairly, using your reflective diaries (6% of your final grade), your assignments (44% of your grade), and your teaching practice (50% of your grade). So regardless of your learning style you will be able to obtain a high score through hard work.
