Leslie is a Canadian English teacher at a junior high school in the Japanese countryside. In this TESOL review, Leslie tells us she is looking to open her own English language day care centre at her home and with this in mind she took the 120-hour certificate course with ITTT as well as the 50-hour young learners course to bring her qualifications up to date. Hopefully for Leslie this will be the first step on a rewarding career as the owner of a successful English language school in Japan.

The choose of the lessons material are crucial in the lesson.the interest of the student is very conditioned by that.
Therefore a teacher s duty will be find engaging materials as much as possible adherent to the student s interest and culture,and not just rely on a textbook.This unit was very difficult! i found it hard to link the ESA straight arrow method to the present perfect tense. I am not sure if i have fully grasped this unit and may have to retake it.I feel that i did not grasp it enough, or i did not understand the questions well enough.The course book is necessary for the teachers to have.
It helps to see how and what to teach /prepare.
The language vocabulary is a guide as a covered all the lessons.
Sometimes teachers need to create the materials as well.
Preparing lesson based on course book is good habit.
