Author: Jason Anderson

ISBN: 9783125016231

Trinity CertTESOL Companion is the ideal companion for any trainee English language teacher preparing for the Trinity CertTESOL course.

Trinity CertTESOL Companion can be used both as pre-course preparation and as a supplement to the training on the course. It sets trainee teachers firmly on the path to becoming capable and independent English language teachers.

Each unit includes a number of key features to model and support best practice in teacher education:
• Learning opportunities provided at the beginning of the unit;
• A review activity at the end of the unit to enable self-evaluation of the learning opportunities;
• ‘Pause for Thought’ activities at several stages within each unit to help trainees reflect on what they are reading in order to consolidate learning;
• Real quotes from CertTESOL trainers and former trainees to provide advice and build confidence.
Other features include:
• An extensive reference unit entitled ‘The Knowledge’ including information on CertTESOL pass criteria, English language exams and key aspects of grammar that trainee teachers need to know;
• A recommended reading list and a selection of pre-course preparation tasks;
• An overview of EFL methodologies and theory which links to the different units/requirements of the CertTESOL;
• Help with lesson planning (including model plan) and structuring assignments;
