You're reading: Novice teacher training

The week-long training focused on the basics of good English teaching methodology. Each day had a pedagogical focus, including teaching speaking, various ways to teach writing, reading techniques and activities, and how best to use listening in the classroom.

Every day began with a warm-up activity which served two purposes. One, it did what the name suggests: it warmed up teachers’ brains and got them ready to work. Two, it gave the teachers an opportunity to experience an activity from the inside out.
