Lesson planning advice for your teaching practice

You will prepare your lessons by adapting activities from existing course books or by creating your own materials. During this time one or more trainers will be available for consultations to offer guidance and suggestions on the appropriateness of your lesson plans, sequence of activities, etc. The rest of the time is for you to finalize your lessons and to prepare your materials.
