For your teaching practice, you will sometimes need to create materials, so you will need to buy office supplies such us card, scissors and glue. These are easily and cheaply available. It is useful to bring with you some “authentic material” from your place of origin to be used with learners. For example, tourist brochures, newspapers, magazines, video with TV programmes/adverts, city maps, family photos. Don´t weigh yourself down with excess baggage, but a few things like this can be useful and interesting to use in the classroom.
You will not need to bring any textbooks with you, as the course library contains all you need for essay assignments and lesson plans. To help you during the course you will also have access to computers and the internet for study purposes.
