About the school, it is well equipped with media tools such as projections, large TVs and WiFi for conducting this program. Also its warm environment and cheerful staff were always helpful during the course. Its location was also relatively accessible from where I live. I was able to use the public transport to get to the school and I never got late thanks to its location which is very close to the metro and bus lines.
About the program, first of all, the course book is very well prepared. I learnt lots of activities from the book. Our teacher gave us enough opportunity to practice those activities such as mingles, riddles, roleplays, debates, etc. I didn’t know about any of them until this course. Secondly, I improved my presentation skills too. Our teacher provided us with written and oral feedback after each mini and micro lesson presentations. I believe I will benefit from them in my future career too. I also got to know some of my skills that I wasn’t aware of. For example, I wasn’t aware of being a kinesthetic person, neither how it might help me in learning and teaching process. I also had a chance to learn about language teaching methods and approaches. I now know tha advantages and disadvantages of them. I had never prepared any lesson plans up until the program. Our teacher showed us how to prepare an ideal lesson plan in a very detailed manner. She explained dos and don’ts. I had a chance to apply what I have learnt theoretically later in practice activities. This gives almost a realtime experience. Later on, I participated in real classroom environment and observed the real lessons during the practicum hours.
