“I certainly feel I’ve become more aware of my lesson planning and of the choices I make as a teacher concerning the order of activities, the materials chosen, patterns of interaction, the importance of appropriate techniques and classroom management.”
Beatriz de Araujo Calheiros
Teacher at Cultura Inglesa S/A
“When I started the course, I was about to start working as a teacher, so I did not have much experience and I felt quite insecure during teaching practice (TP).
As the course was very practical, I was able to put into practice everything I had learned. I also had the opportunity to reflect after each of my lessons and consider the feedback received from the tutors and my classmates.”
Luan da Cunha Curvello D’Avila
Teacher at Cultura Inglesa Duque de Caxias
“Throughout the course, I was able to see how much I have improved as a teacher, and now I am equipped with a great variety of teaching techniques.
I believe before the course I was a good teacher because I was always concerned about my students’ needs. I now feel more confident and more prepared to help my students with their needs.
I can already feel the difference in my classes and my students’ response.”
Teacher at Cultura Inglesa Belford Roxo
“This was not only a course for me, but also a journey. I joined the CertTESOL right after having graduated at Cultura Inglesa last year.
At first, I felt rather intimidated, since most of the other trainees had some experience as teachers and knew a lot more about the English language and teaching techniques.
As the course progressed, I found myself enjoying the experience and succeeding. With a great deal of help from the tutors and my classmates I managed to overcome my fears and finish this course, which I’m really proud of doing.”
