What's the general timetable like?
timetable guide is a general overview for various courses around the
world. Every city has a different system.
From Monday to Friday, there are input sessions every morning from 9.30am to 12.30pm, where trainees learn classroom management, grammar, language and culture, and other practical aspects of the course. Lunch is from 12.30pm to 1.30pm. From 1.30pm to 3.00pm, trainees prepare their lessons with assistance of the instructors, then from 3.00pm to 5.00pm they teach their lessons to international students. These lessons are followed by feedback from the instructors the following morning. We aim to provide 6 to 10 hours of observed teaching practice over the 4 weeks. These lessons are taught from Monday to Friday. Trainees are encouraged to take their books with them to the beach, so that they can study over the weekend! In addition to those hours, there is also time that must be spent preparing materials and completing various assignments.
Please note that the above timetable is a rough guide only and will differ depending on the socioeconomic conditions of the area the centre is located. Every centre will have a slightly different schedule which will be advised when you start the course.
During the course you will learn a little of another language using the same techniques as you will use to teach English. This is so that trainees can see the problems that students will face from their perspective.
