ICCT TESOL Workshops
Practical instruction on teaching ESL/EFL to adults
The Institute for Cross-Cultural Training (ICCT) currently offers three TESOL workshops that are designed to meet the practical needs of ESL/EFL teachers and volunteers who have had little or no practical training for teaching English. No prior teaching experience or knowledge of linguistics is assumed.
Reach Out with English (ROWE)
ROWE provides a basic foundation in teaching ESL/EFL to adults. Thirty contact hours. It is offered on campus each summer in early June as a one-week intensive course, and it is sometimes offered across three weekends in the fall or spring. Although most participants take this workshop for non-credit, the summer class (also called Essentials of TESOL) may be taken for two hours of credit. Summer 2015: June 1-5.
Essentials of Teaching English Pronunciation
This workshop provides a foundational understanding of the English pronunciation system and equips participants with the skills necessary to diagnose pronunciation errors and assist learners in improving their listening and production of the various elements of English pronunciation. Thirty contact hours, non-credit only. Offered across three weekends in Fall 2014 and as a one-week intensive course, June 8-12, 2015.
Essentials of Teaching English Grammar
This workshop provides a foundational understanding of the English grammar system and equips participants with the skills necessary to introduce grammatical concepts to their ESL/EFL learners in clear, uncomplicated ways. Thirty contact hours, non-credit only. Scheduled for June 2016 as a one-week intensive course.
