Last December, we launched a crowdfunding campaign to set up a special course to train some of our students to become language teachers themselves – https://chuffed.org/project/participatory-esol-teacher-training-for-migrants-refugees. We received all the funding we needed (thank you!) and were able to run the course over 12 weeks. We had students from various countries – including Chile, Palestine, Syria, Congo, and Romania – and with different levels of experience. Three of the students are now teaching their own classes for us and have joined our organising team.
This is what the students had to say about the course:
The way of teaching was perfect Adela was gave us the information and we try to figure out how is the way of teach. I learnd a new way how to teach .
This was a fantastic and enjoyable class, this class helped me to became more confidence in teaching i also discover my strengths and weaknesses. It helped me to improved my knowledge.
I would like to express my gratitude for giving me the chance to take this interesting course. The teacher training course qualified me to teach Arabic language course to students of different ages and backgrounds. The activities and teaching methods that I received/engaged in in the teacher training class were useful even in the Arabic language course. I had a lot of fun, knowledge and training.
I think the development of the language and expression´s skills is the base for the construction of a better world, so, I thank the opportunity of learn english here (In Babel Blessing) where is very important the inclusion and the collective work between teachers and students, in this manner, with your donation you are important part of a new better world, thanks!!
