Testimonial

Young Learners Workshop Included

What I enjoyed the most about this course was the teaching practice. I also enjoyed teaching to university students, San Pa Tong Anuban, Pratom and Mathayom students. It was really a very good experience and something I really enjoyed. I also really enjoy young learners’ workshops because it kind of gave us a lot of new things we can try with kids and when we actually use it in real life, it was quite fun and it work well and the kids love it.

Observing teachers at Chiang Mai University

What I enjoyed the most were teaching practice, going to schools, teaching San Pa Tong School which was really amazing. Observing teaching practice was also really good at the Language Institute at Chiang Mai University. The staff also took care of us and all were extremely knowledgeable and they made it very enjoyable for us to continue, I enjoyed this experience.

Rosemary

Confident Teacher

During my first teaching practice I was really nervous, being a teacher in the class but the organization like when that time we learned how to create a lesson plan was really helpful, and so that a critique from our teacher and now I don't feel so nervous and feel more confident

Abigail

Lesson Planning

When I came here to try this course, I had learned a lot of things and teaching is not like you just go and finish your teaching but they would probably think that how much your students get? And when I was in teaching practice, I know how to write a lesson plan, and when you have a lesson plan and you go into the class, you know what you had to do and it keeps you go to the right way. So, yes you don't lose way with anything to do. It always been a great time for me as I had a lot of friends and I had learned about new culture.

Different nationality of learners

We did a lot of different exercises and we also had teaching practice. I'm a teacher already in my home country but it was very nice to be able to teach Chinese students at Chiang Mai University and they were pretty lovely. So, I enjoyed my lesson to teach Chinese students
