We’re offering a week of free, in-person English language classes as part of our Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) programme to anyone whose first language is not English or Afrikaans. International students who would like to improve their English skills would be our ideal candidates.
How did this come about, you may ask. Shannon Bishop, coordinator of our Intensive English Programme explains: “TEFL trainees who are currently attending the Language Centre’s TEFL programme to become English second language (ESL) teachers will be presenting the classes. Our TEFL course has a practical teaching component, and students do not qualify if they haven’t completed the practical component successfully. This is a way to prepare our students for the world of work and to ensure that we train competent ESL teachers. It also gives participants an opportunity to work on their skills in English.”
The classes will run for one week from 22 to 26 February 2021 on the Stellenbosch campus from 9:00 to 13:00 daily. All Covid-19 protocols will be observed. If you sign up, you need to commit for the whole week. You will be required to wear a mask at all times and asked to bring your own notebook, stationery, snacks and water bottle. You will have to arrive 10 to 15 minutes before class to sign in, record your temperature and sanitise your hands.
If you are interested in improving your English and you are available from 9:00 to 13:00 from Monday 22 February to Friday, 26 February, please e-mail Shannon at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your place. We have only a few places left, so don’t delay!
