How have I developed this competency during this course or professional seminar/field experience?

My first language being Arabic I still make mistakes while speaking and writing in English. However, I am able to auto-correct myself. I used dictionaries found in classrooms to model a good strategy for students and for my improvement. I completed the Certificate of Proficiency in English - Language and Culture in McGill.

Throughout my experience, I was very happy with my level of development in this competency. I am able to use appropriate language when speaking to teachers and students. I am able to correct students’ mistakes in both their oral and written work. This enables me to use the English language in the classroom at all times and I never had to refer back to the students’ first language (Arabic in both Egypt and United Arab Emirates or French in Quebec).

I have been able to express myself with ease throughout the teaching journey.

Attached is an example of lesson plan I prepared focused on oral communication.
