No cars.

I’ve just collected my CertTESOL Level 5 Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages, certified by Trinity College London 🎉🎉🎉

Language Tuition Nottingham ran the course, which was meant to run from January to April 2020. Covid had other plans, however, which meant the course finally ended in September.

The course followed a ‘blended learning’ style – a combination of online and face-to-face learning and teaching.

The two week face-to-face teaching block in April was replaced by four weeks of online teaching via Zoom (one session per week throughout June) to students located around the world. 

This was followed in September by a one week face-to-face teaching block, based in the Language Tuition school in Nottingham.

My fellow trainee teachers were a mixture of ages, genders and nationalities and were supportive throughout, as well as fun to be around.

The ESOL students were keen, committed and fully engaged in the lessons. They were appreciative of our time and efforts in helping them to develop and improve their use of English.

Covid meant that the course leaders had to adapt how the content was delivered: I am now able to teach lessons online – not my intention at the start, but a great skill to gave nonetheless – as well as in person.

The course was intense, but I got so much out of it.  Teaching students was thoroughly rewarding – the best part, I’d say.

Thanks to Marius and Angela who delivered the course under difficult and ever-changing circumstances – we got there in the end!
