Peter Goudge – an educator with qualities

Full Description

When you’re looking for a teacher- trainer – a teacher who teaches teachers – and you want to be sure of the results you’ll get. There are a few things to consider. Methodology, price, course duration, professionalism and experience are just a few issues that immediately come to mind.

For the purpose of this document, let’s focus our attention on teaching English as a second language.

Regardless of whether you’d like to teach English as a second language or you’re an existing teacher who is looking to stand-out in a competitive employment market, Peter Goudge at the Australia-Vietnam School of English (AVSE) in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam can help you achieve your goal.

Peter Goudge is a TESOL educator whose main role at the Australia-Vietnam School of English (AVSE) is teaching aspiring English language teachers and existing English language teachers how to teach.

Not all teachers are able to lead a class and make it vibrant, interesting and highly interactive, but when you will see Peter Goudge in action you will know he has what it takes. Engaging, humorous, energetic and smart are just some of comments you’ll hear students at the Australia-Vietnam School of English (AVSE) make about Peter Goudge at the end of a lesson.

While teaching teachers how to teach keeps Peter Goudge very busy at the Australia-Vietnam School of English (AVSE), he still finds time to take-on general English classes for students of all ages and skill levels. The teaching methods that Peter Goudge uses in his general English classes result in students coming back for more and more, so he must be doing something right.

It doesn’t matter what class he’s taking, Peter Goudge is focused on what he calls the ‘20/80’ rule. When a teacher speaks more than 20% of the time in an ‘English as a second language’ classroom, there’s far less chance that the desired learning outcomes will be achieved.

According to Peter Goudge, too many English as second language teachers like the sound of their own voice and consequently represent a key inhibitor to students developing their English language skills.

You’d assume that a professional English language teacher would already have good English language skills and therefore they don’t need to engage in further practice when they get into the classroom. In contrast, students around the world join English language classes because they want the opportunity to practice and improve their skill level. This isn’t possible in a classroom environment that’s dominated by a talkative teacher.

If you’re someone who is thinking about teaching English as a second language or perhaps you’re already a professional teacher who wants to do even better, Peter Goudge is there to help. You’ll find him at the Australia-Vietnam School of English (AVSE) in Ho Chi Minh City.
