    Practicum is an essential component to a teacher’s training process, as it provides valuable insight and experience prior to obtaining independent teaching positions. WCL requires that all students accumulate a minimum of 20 hours for TEFL/TESOL certification. These hours can be achieved through observation, tutoring, student teaching or a combination of 2 or 3 of these in an ESL/EFL setting in which non-native speakers are learning new English language skills.


    Our three learning blocks enable us to mark you fairly, using your reflective diaries (10% of your final grade), your online tasks (50% of your grade), and your teaching practice (40% of your grade). So regardless of  your learning style you will be able to obtain a high score through hard work
