Training for Language Volunteers in IRCC-funded Programs

TESL Basics for Language Volunteers (TBLV) team members Marijke Geurts and Matthias Sturm delivered this webinar about the TBLV online course, which offers basic TESL training and an orientation for volunteers working with newcomers.

After piloting the course, New Language Solutions now is looking for SPOs who would like to run this online training for their own language volunteers.

The course is about 15 hours in length, delivered online over a period of 7 weeks.

Each week a new topic is introduced, including an introduction to the CLBs, working with lower-level learners, using realia, and volunteering in an online environment.

What we are looking for:
– IRCC funded organizations/programs
– ability to assign your own volunteer coach (an experienced ESL instructor)

What we offer:
– Free Train the Trainer course & support
– Your own TBLV course to use with your volunteers
