Job Overview

The chosen candidate must not only be able to effectively teach the target language as measured by the progress of their students’ language proficiency, but they must also create an engaging learning environment by following the methodology such that the students desire to continue studying at the Language Learning Institute.

The methodology is very specific. It begins with teaching from the isolated word and a picture may be used to identify the word. Next, the word evolves to a fragment, and then a sentence, and ultimately to a story. Students are taught to actively listen and hear what the speaker is saying to them. Students learn to use what they hear to answer the question, and they study for usage. Students are provided the opportunity to use an integrated fashion in speaking what they have learned. Reading and writing assignments are provided to practice the lesson taught. The curriculum is provided to the teacher. Co-ordinating textbook and workbook assignments are utilized to optimize the active use of the language. This is a performance-based course – non-grade.
Studies in linguistics and phonetics are required to successfully teach using this methodology. Linguistic patterning is applied to the teaching.

Primary Responsibilities and Duties

  • Implement the curriculum using the prescribed methodology with fidelity
