TESOL course information
The internationally recognised SIT TESOL course is offered at NMMU. This course is offered at various sites around the world and the NMMU is the only institution in South Africa with trainers licensed to offer this course.
1. Course content
Our course focuses on
All sections start with sample lessons which are then processed so that the participants together can recognise a framework used in the lessons which then becomes the basis of their own lessons. The overarching goal of the course is for participants to be able to plan teach and evaluate an ESL/EFL lesson. Each day is divided into three main components, workshop time, lesson planning, and practice teaching and feedback.
At the end of the course successful participants receive the SIT TESOL certificate. In addition there is now the option to enrol for Master’s credits at SIT which means you could have 5 credits at Master’s level in the US educational system. See the World Learning SIT TESOL site for more information. For more info http://www.sit.edu/graduate/6711.htm
The course participants should have a mother tongue fluency in English with effective speaking and writing skills. We prefer applicants to have a degree or a diploma and some countries require a degree or a diploma before you can teach there. It is not necessary to have prior teaching experience though this can be helpful.
