What travel documents will I need for travel to the usa?Expand
This information is specific to your country of origin. For the most accurate and current information regarding travel documents for the USA, please contact your nearest American Embassy. There is also a very good chance that all the information you require (application documents, application fees, duration of processing documents), is available on the embassy’s webpage.
What is the course schedule?Expand
During the first week, classes heavily concentrate on learning about ESL teaching principles and methods. Classes start at 9:00 a.m. and finish at 5:00 p.m. with an hour lunch from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. and several short breaks throughout the day. During these sessions trainees learn about classroom management, grammar, phonology, culture and other practical aspects of the course.
Students start their teaching practice in the middle of the second week. The lessons are given to the New York ESL students at the TEFL/TESOL Training Institute. These lessons are followed by immediate feedback from the instructors. We aim to provide six to ten hours of observed teaching practice over the four-week course.
On Fridays, trainees review and do assignments in the morning and are then free after 1:00 p.m. Weekends are also free. They are, however, encouraged to take their books with them wherever they go, so they can study. In addition to these hours, there is also time that must be spent preparing materials and completing various assignments.
What can I expect during teaching practice?Expand
We use local immigrant students for the trainees’ teaching practice. These students are very keen and enthusiastic and because we don’t charge them to attend, all students come to classes purely because they want to!
Lessons are based upon real teaching resources found all over the world and you will have the chance to create your own materials as well. You will receive the aid of your course trainer throughout lesson planning and receive immediate feedback on your lesson after it’s been delivered. Practicum is assessed and a satisfactory assessment is required to earn your TEFL/TESOL certificate.
Who usually attends the course?Expand
On average, we have around seven trainees on each course. The participants come from a wide variety of English speaking countries and we also accept non-native speakers of English with a high proficiency in the language.
Is there a dress code?Expand
When you are not teaching, attire can be casual. However, please bear in mind that we enjoy four seasons in New York: spring, summer, fall and winter. Between November and the end of February, the temperature may fall below freezing so a winter coat, a hat, a scarf and mittens/gloves are recommended. In March, temperatures begin to rise and New Yorkers start wearing t-shirts, shorts and sandals, although you should still bring something warm to wear in case of a few additional cold days. From the end of May to the beginning of September, the temperature varies between warm and very hot and there is also a high probability of short, heavy showers. During September and October the temperature is usually around a cool 55 °F.
During your teaching practice, attire should be smart and conservative. Your shoulders must be covered and skirts or trousers must cover your knees when you are sitting down. Women are advised to be careful that your shirts are not too low cut or show your stomach as you may need to lean over to help a student sitting at a desk. Jeans, shorts and flip-flops are not acceptable during teaching practice. Shoes or sandals should be conservative.
What should I bring for course studies?Expand
Please be sure to arrive on the first day of the course with a notebook and a pen. We encourage you to bring a laptop as the training center has excellent high-speed internet connections, including wireless. There are also a number of internet cafes nearby. Should you require a computer for coursework and lesson planning at the school, we have a computer available.
