On November 12th, the TESOL and TFL students set out to the International School of Monterey to teach language lessons to elementary school students. TESOL/TFL students prepared for the lesson in their Principles and Practices of Language Teaching class and taught two, 30-minute lessons in small teams. Each of the classes at the International School of Monterey had a chance to experience two different language classes taught by MIIS students. Although many MIIS students have had prior teaching experience, it was the first opportunity for many students to practice applying the knowledge of theory learned in their classes.
Among the lessons taught were an introduction to Arabic, a lesson about Chinese numbers, playing a classic game in Japanese, singing in French, making Aztec gods in Spanish, and a world tour of saying hello in many languages.
The TESOL/TFL students will have a chance to adapt their lessons and teach again on November 19th at MIIS for International Day when students from three local high schools come to get exposure to some new languages!
