Our training director Ross and program manager Sally started the training session with four areas for the volunteers to pay attention to:
1. commitment – what does it take to be a qualified teacher?
2.demo classes – a demo class of teaching Indonesian to show how it is for a beginner to learn a new foreign language.
3.teaching techniques – demonstration, modeling, drilling, eliciting, monitoring, refocusing and praising.
4. teaching practice – volunteers have a chance to do a demo class and apply what has been taught.
A similar training has also been carried out for our English teaching volunteers in Shanghai by Sally and our new volunteer trainer Claire. Now we cannot wait to see how these trainings help our volunteers in the new semester! Stay tuned!
