Trinity DipTESOL

We’re now living in unprecedented times as the COVID-19 pandemic has drastically changed the way we live and work. As schools are forced to adapt their services fast, or close completely, many teachers are moving their classes online. 

The good news is that there are still plenty of students who are still keen to learn. As professional teachers, it is our responsibility to provide effective classes online, to help our students reach their learning goals. We would love to find out more about the ways in which you are helping your students do this online.


We are happy to announce the following 10 people as our finalists (in no particular order):

Milica Vukadin, Kyle Tham Choon Yvin, Ben Crompton, Christopher Carbin, Vania Emeraldine Aditri, Ekaterina Denisik, Seyed Iman Tofighi, Thomas Howard Tabor, Fernanda Ceneviva, Nga Kieu Pham. Congratulations!

These finalists will now complete a final wriiten task and the winners will be announced on Friday August 7th 2020:

Final written task: Write an outline for an online lesson which integrates pronunciation.

Choose a learner or group of learners you know well and design a 60-minute online lesson for them. Select a topic they will find motivating and relevant and then create a relevant communicative objective and language objectives which will support that communicative goal. Please include examples of the language you will teach. From your language objective select pronunciation aims and include examples. Then, write a 200 to 300-word rationale for the topic and objectives telling us why this lesson is relevant to your learner or learners.

Good luck!
