  2. We have meticulously reviewed the handouts (about 70 pages) to enable deeper understanding and immediate application in lessons.
  3. A dedicated trainer will directly respond to opinions and questions during practice mentioned in your report, making your learning experience more fruitful. Please write about any questions, problems, and creative solutions you discovered after practicing the lessons immediately after watching each lecture in your report. 

Three Points to Acknowledge

  1. You will be learning from edited videos that were originally recorded by IIEEC for archival purposes. They have received positive feedback for offering a learning experience comparable to attending live lectures.
  2. Faces of participants are edited out to protect privacy, so there are sections with only audio/subtitles.
  3. For the skills session parts, actual practice scenes have been cut to 10-20 seconds. Please pause the video as needed, practice on your own, and try to apply what you’ve learned in your lessons immediately.

This certified program, consisting of six workshops (totaling 12 modules of lectures and exercises), aims first and foremost for teachers to gain the confidence to teach English to children effectively, regardless of the classroom setting — online, large, or small groups. By participating, you can make your lessons more vibrant and effective, thereby also enhancing your motivation as a teacher. We hope you take this opportunity to complete all six workshops online and immediately apply what you’ve learned to your lessons.
