The ECD program focuses on speaking and listening with a fun, hands on approach. Think about how we learn English as young children – visual aids, games, songs! This program aims to build confidence in speaking English and to encourage natural speech. It is all about focusing on the conversations they are likely to come across; “what are you doing tonight?”, “have you seen this movie?”, “what would you like to eat?”. It’s about natural, normal conversation.
Curriculum: We provide you with a full curriculum to follow; we give you topics, key vocab and worksheets to use – but we encourage creativity in the classroom! Use your own methods and strategies in teaching our topics; you have full liberty to your own style. Above all, ECD lessons should be fun and hands on.
Level: ECD teaching can be from Pratom (primary) level 1-6 to Mathayom (secondary) level 1-6 – it depends on your placement.
Timetable: You will see each of your classes once per week, and teach only a couple of Mathayom levels. For example you might teach the Mathayom 1 and 2 students, and another teacher teachers 3 and 4, and another 5 and 6.
