|Field of Study:||Teaching English as a Second or Foreign Lang./ESL Lang. Instructor
|Description:||Humber has been training teachers for more than 20 years. Faculty members are highly respected, dedicated professionals with, at minimum, a master's degree and TESL certification who have been teaching, publishing, and working in the ESL field. Humber's innovative curriculum is based on the latest ESL teaching approaches, methods, and assessment systems, including the CLB (Canadian Language Benchmarks).
Participants are exposed to a wide range of theoretical issues and receive a variety of opportunities for ESL classroom observation and practice teaching. Unlike many other institutions, our practicum is fully arranged and supervised. Students fulfill their practicum requirements (80 hours) partly in Humber's English Language Centre, in the English for Academic Purposes program, and partly in the school board's adult ESL and LINC classes. Participants also work as tutors in Humber's Writing Centre and Language Lab, where they practise CALL (Computer Assisted Language Learning) methodology using the latest multimedia software.
