Location: University of Calgary, Calgary
Compensation: Hourly $30 - $50

The English Language Program at the University of Calgary is currently looking for qualified ESL instructors to teach in the Summer I Intensive Program from June 27-July 22, 2022 with possibility of extension.

The Summer Intensive Program includes the following courses:

General ESL:  In the ELP intensive course, students will take a communicative approach to learning English. Although points of grammar will be thoroughly reviewed, students will focus mainly on the skills of speaking and listening. Students will be expected to play an active role in speaking and listening in class.

Literature Circle: This class aims to develop students’ proficiency at integrating critical thinking skills, reading tasks, writing tasks and vocabulary development. A “Literature Circle” is a structure for talking about a book with peers as the book is read together.

Pronunciation: In this class, students will take a communicative approach to learning pronunciation.  Students will improve their pronunciation by focusing on vowel sounds, consonant sounds, syllable stress, word stress, contractions, rhythm and intonation.

We are looking for instructors with a minimum of a bachelor’s degree plus an ESL teaching certificate recognized by TESL Canada or equivalent.

We offer competitive compensation: $44-$47 / contact hour.
