Training sessions model the same student-centered classroom practices that
trainees should strive for in their own ESL classrooms, with a strong
emphasis on facilitating student participation and engaging in a variety of
learning activities. 
Each day, trainees apply this new learning to real classroom practice as
they team-teach guided lessons to a class of ESL students. Graduates leave
