This course is designed to introduce the students with the practicalities of English Language Teaching in the real-time situation. It will provide an opportunity to the class participants to apply their gleaned theoretical and technical knowledge in the practical settings. Thus, they will have a short-period supervised experience to reflect on their teaching philosophy, curriculum development and classroom procedures. The course participants would also observe classroom proceedings, assist some ELT instructor and involve themselves in solo teaching experience.
