Teaching Makes Learning Language More Meaningful

TESOL Philippines, the teaching certification division of TalkShop offers enriching teaching courses for educators, trainors, as well as non-native English speakers. Sheila Viesca, TalkShop CEO encourages even non-educators to enroll. She explains , “. It is in the act of teaching that students learn twice. This is TalkShop’s direction in teaching language . In inspiring students to work harder to qualify for teaching , students in turn become confident and credible to share knowledge to others that need it.” 

Students will be oriented on the TalkShop method which is ILT. This infuses the communicative , interactive teaching style of the west with the traditional , creative practices of the east. “ She adds that “ even students and other professionals can join the program to enhance language skills 

Viesca pioneered the ILT method in the Philippines. This promotes motivation-inspired learning by incorporating exercises that learners find meaningful in their daily life. The training includes functional communication activities, social interaction, dialogue, and role-playing complemented with music and arts .

TESOL curricula include interactive and comprehensive courses namely Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) , Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL Advanced ) and Teaching English for Speakers of Other Languages ( TESOL ) .
