TESOL Teacher Training

Macquarie University English Language Centre offers a TESOL program ideal for both current and trainee English teachers with an overall IELTS test result of 5.5 - 6 (Academic Module) or equivalent.

This program allows teachers to participate in TESOL Methodology Workshops and also to improve their English language skills.

While the program is presented at an English language level below that for university entrance, the topics and issues covered are similar to those in certified TESOL training courses. This program can be used as preparation for further study, or as personal development for teachers who are already qualified.

TESOL Methodology Workshops

1. Interaction in the Language Classroom class room
2. Presenting and Practising Language
3. Planning Lessons
4. Teaching Listening
5. Teaching Reading
6. Teaching Speaking
7. Teaching Writing
8. Teaching Pronunciation
9. Teaching Vocabulary
10. Teaching Grammar
11. Using Materials and Technology
12. Assessing the Four Skills

Flexible Learning

The workshops can be studied as a face-to-face program or teachers may choose to complete some workshops online in their own country before coming to Australia to complete the rest of the program, and participate in classroom observations. Workshops can be studied in any order and in any combination.

Classroom Observations

As part of the program, participants will observe experienced English language teachers at the English Language Centre or visits to local primary and high schools may also be included in the face-to-face program on request*.
