Especially for such a developing country as Vietnam, English has been taught
from an early age and many young people are aware of the importance for
reasons like finding a high salary job, communicating with the outside world,
gaining access to resources of science they are. Therefore,there is great
demand for teaching and learning English throughout the country for
different purposes.The first, I choose it because I want to become a teacher. When I was a
little girl, I wish I could become a teacher. I had decided to be a teacher because I felt that
I could reach any kind of student get them to think about their place in the world and
what kind of person they wanted to be .In my teaching career, I have almost always
worked with the more difficult students.Moreover, nowadays English in Vietnam becomes
more important and necessary in work, English certificate is now seen as a vital requirement for
employment. The last but not least is I also have the change to transmit all of my knowledge, life
experience, skills and I would like to train them especially young people become not only in the
professional life

but also helpful citizen. So that they can dedicate to country. Otherwise

becoming teacher I will get more respect from the others , and have more chance to earn a lot of
money to spend for my life.

4. SIGNIFICANCE OF INTERNSHIP

My internship began from September first 2015. During my internship period, I paid
attention some classes such as: DHAV10A,DHAV10B,DHTN11ATT. On the first week I came to
DHAV10A, after that DHAV10B, taught by MS Hoang Le Thi Tuyet,Ms Ngo Lam Ngoc Thao
for practice and through the teaching periods of teachers. I have learned many important things
to myself. I started to practice teaching English. I took period January 11st 2016 class in A1.06
classroom. The second time are on January 12nd 2016 and the final teaching practice is on
March 16th 2016.
After observed and teaching, I have known that the internship is very important and
significant. It provides career-building experience and be a stepping stone to my dream job. I
without it I cannot imagine what I suppose to do in the future. In three months I have a change to
working with many teachers, students in some classes. I summarize lots of experience and things
to become a success teacher. The internship make me know that students in each class has
different level and they are not good as I expect. Each class, teacher has change the way to teach
though they are learning the same unit. Besides teaching teacher giving them example to make
them know clearly the meaning or teacher give them some clues so that they can understand by
their own. Otherwise the internship has improved my skill a lot such as board writing skill,
communication skill especially it make me more and more confident to teach in front of many
students.
Thanks to my instructor, friends and the most important is IUH and FFL, I have finished
my internship perfect. After teaching practice, I want to become a teacher and teaching students
in the classroom.

Labelling a map plan

Setting an arrangement with the teacher and got her permission previously, in the
afternoon of the September 1st 2015,my teamates and I was given a good opportunity
to observe class named DHAV10B.There were total 35 students out of 40.Some
students were absent,the others havent come yet.It is so lucky for me because when I
arrived ,they were in the beginning of the lesson.
A4 09 is an ideal classroom for learning and teaching English which is highly eqipped
with a screen,a white board and a high quality of speakers.It is alo spacious so there are
enough place for all students.The atmosphere in the class is a little hot but it is

considerable.In addition,the teacher comes with a laptop that assists her a lot in
teaching English especially in listening and giving information.
In the beginning of the lesson,teacher revised the previous lesson.She reminded some
tips that is useful for students when they listen.Then she explained about map and
plan .She required students to do exercise 4 about prepositions used in labelling a
map plan.
To begin the listening section,she gave handout.Teacher didnt forget to explain the key
words,phrases appeared in the listening tape and draw up the appropriate strategies for
them to listen effectively.After that,she let her student listen.Students were asked to
listen in 2 times and work in pair to do the exercise in which they have to match the
pictures on their book .I could see her enthusiasm that she moved around and explained
if students were unclear or have any questions about the exercises.When all students
finished their exercise,she asked them to show their answers on the board.When
everything is done,she let her students listen one more time to check answers and give
feedbacks and comments.Students checked the answers that teacher showed on the
screen.
Teacher moved onto the next exercise .She explained what is a flow chart and the
process of a flow chart (then,after that,next,the last one,finally,at the end,eventually,last
but not least.)in order to help students to complete the task.She also explained some
vocabularies with explaination.
In this period,English was mainly used by teacher to teach and talk with students
.Sometimes teacher used Vietnamese to explain.Most of students in the class are active
and they give answer to teacher.In my opinion,this was a good and sucessful period.I
found that it is very important for teacher to give motivation which helps students study
better and excitedly.I learn a lot from the way teacher controll the class.Thanks to
observation,I gained lot of useful experience in teaching that helped me very much in
teaching practise.

Unit 4:The world around us

In the afternoon of
October
13th
2015,my
teammates and I
had
the
next
observation of our
intership.Once
again,one of our
group
member
checked teachers

schedule.Therefore,we had called the teacher in advance to get her permission.The teacher was
happy to let us observe her teaching period.
A410 is an ideal classroom for learning and teaching English which is highly eqipped with a
screen,a white board and a high quality of speakers.It is alo spacious so there are enough place
for all students.The atmosphere in the class is a little hot but it is considerable.In addition,the
teacher comes with a laptop that assists her a lot in teaching English especially in speaking and
giving information.
It is an English speaking class that is conducted by teacher who was supposed to be very active
and good at teaching speaking skill.When I arrived the class,they are about to begin the
lesson.The classroom does not have many seats that is filled by 30 students .It was so lucky for
all of us to observe the lesson.
At the beginning of the lesson,the whole class was very excited because teacher gave the
question what have you done to protect the environment.Everyone seemed to be excited
beacause the question related to their daily lives.Consequently,lots of students raised their hand
to aswer the teachers question.The way teacher reasponses to her students was very funny and
humourous.It make me think that is one of important characteristic that teacher should have
because everyone all want to learn English in a comfortable environment.She also checked
students pronounciation and stress carefully.
After that,teacher showed the exercise on the screen and asked students to do indiviually.She
didnt forget to explain some difficult vocabulary and pharases (boycott,organic food,.).This
exercise related to some activity that can help us to protect our environment.Teacher gave out
the question:Which of the things above do you do?

Listenning is the next part of the lesson,she provided them a lot of new words and phrases.She
showed some pictures about the carbon footprint and explained.
At the end of the lesson,she gave her students exercise that help her a lot in practising
collocations.
The strongest point after observing this lesson is teachers pronunciation.She was attracted not
only by her humour but also by her pronounciation.It is a critical feature to make a qualified
teacher of Speaking.The role of a teacher teaching speaking is not only perform her speaking
ability but also motivate students to speak.

At the same day 14th of October,I went to class DHAV10B.This class has over 30 students whose
major was English.The class was studying and the textbook they used was Get Ready For Ielts
Reading.When I came to the class,most of students were studying ,some students discussed
something.
A409 is an ideal classroom for learning and teaching English which is highly eqipped with a

for all students.The atmosphere in the class is a little hot but it is considerable.In addition,the
teacher comes with a laptop that assists him a lot in teaching English especially in teaching
Reading skill and giving information.
At the begin of the lesson,teacher gave students handout containing some exercise.He required
his students to do the exercise 1.He asked students to underline the key words and give their
answer.Most of students do as the teachers requirement but some students didnt know how to
do.After that,teacher show the answer on the screen and checked.The way he expained the lesson

make her students fell interested and they can remember the lesson longer.He asked his students
to write down their answer on their book.Students just keep silent and write down something on
their book.
Teacher moved on another task.He read the requirement of the task.After some
minutes,he asked his students to do the exercise in which they had to match the
information from each collums to be suited to each other.
Teacher asked students to do the final exercise of the lesson.It is a translation
exercise.He required his students to translate the paragraph into Vietnamese.
In this period,Vietnamese is used most by teacher to teach and talk with student.Most of
students in this class are not very active,they didnt raise their hand and always keep
silent in the class.I think teacher should supervise them more when they do the
exercise.

Under Pressure

My final observation was on 22 nd October,2015.I visitted a class taught by a teacher from


FFL.The course book for the lesson was International Express. Once again,one of our group
member checked teachers schedule.Therefore,we had called the teacher in advance to get her
permission.The teacher was happy to let us observe her teaching period. This was not English
majored class with over 40 students.When we went to the class,they had not begun the lesson
yet.The teacher and students were preparing the lesson.They were studying unit 7:Under
pressure.
B3 12 is an ideal classroom for learning and teaching English which is highly eqipped with a
screen,a white board and a high quality of speakers.It is alo spacious so there are enough place
for all students.The atmosphere in the class is a little hot but it is considerable.In addition,the
teacher comes with a laptop that assists her a lot in teaching English especially in teaching and
giving information.
At the beginning,teacher had an interesting warm up.She asked her students some questions
related to the topic under pressure.Then she called out randomly 3 students to answer her
questions.After giving comments on their answer,she asked them to think of some words that
they are going to use in the lesson.This help students get familiar with the structures in the
lesson.
To begin the listening lesson,she provided the form of Present Continuous.Before listening,she
explained some difficult words ,phrases,key words appeared in the listening tape and drew up an
appropriate stategy to help them listen effectively.Then she turned on the volume for students to
listen.Students were asked to listen two times and then work in pair to do the exercisein which
they have to match pictures on their book.She also moved around and gave her students some
help if they need.When all students finished,she asked them to show answer on the board.She let
her students listen once more time and give answers,feedbacks.
In the next task,students work in pairs to make sentences using the present continuous.
During the period,the teacher used both English and Vietnamese to communicate with her
students,which was both suitable for teacher and students because this was not English majored
class.Besides,most students were very active and willing to answer teachers questions.Teacher
had good knowledge and teaching skill.

READING

I start teaching a month later after I have observed 5 classes, the first class I teach
at DHAV122. I have prepared my lesson plan in a week and before I teaching in class, I
have invited all member in my group to attend my practice teaching. Besides they help
me a lot for finding my mistakes and faults, give some new ideals to my lesson plan.The
textbook I used was International Express.
To prepare for teaching process, firstly, I read the content of the lesson in the book
carefully. But the warm up made me lose a lot of time.. I also created an exciting game
to start a new lesson.
Secondly, I searched the Internet some pictures and useful information in content
of the lesson to students understand clearly. Then, I read carefully of each part about new
words and exercises and activities I could apply on my teaching process. In addition, I
have prepared the equipment for teaching, such as loudspeaker, microphone, flashcards,
handout.

Finally, I asked Miss Xuan Trinh to get some useful advice how to teach. I started
to do lesson plan. Then, I hand in Mr Hong my lesson plan. After that, I designed the
lesson by using PowerPoint. I proceeded to teach at home several times to remember the
procedure of the lesson.
Because this is my first period of real teaching, so I felt confused and nervous.
Limited time is one of my serious difficulties. I had only 45 minutes to finish my lesson
in turn. There were a few unexpected situations. Therefore, I got many difficulties to
complete my teaching on time. My teaching is finished but not perfect but I feel very
happy.
In general, I have prepared carefully all of necessary tools, lesson plan though I
have practice speaking every day before I teach. For me, the good points while I'm
teaching are usually getting attention of student, creating interesting environment,
teaching process is smooth,giving clear instruction,paying attention on students learning
activities .
But I'm not satisfy with some places while I'm teaching such as: Give gift to
wrong person,put all vocabulary in different slide so students cant follow,dont use all
space of the board,forget to teach key words. If I have a change to teach this class again I
will prepare phonetic of each word carefully, give more examples, ideals, information in
speaking part, take time to repair the pronounce of students, should more interested in
class, control time well.

Content: Grammar (do,make,have)
In my second period, I taught grammar of unit 2 do,make,have.First, I read the
content of the lesson in the book carefully. In the first part, I warm-up students by holding a
small game for them to play and leads them to the main content of the lesson. I introduce
the game What are they doing and show some pictures on the screen and

require students to guess what they are doing. Then,I ask students to open
their books (page 22). I introduce the way to use DO,MAKE and HAVE for
students.
After teaching grammar for all students,I ask them to apply what I teach by doing
exercise in the book.Then,I require some students to stand up and give the answers.
At the end of the lesson, I review all vocabularies for students and remind them of
learning by heart all vocabularies at home.
Taking experiences from the first class so I'm very confident in teaching, I have
controlling the time well, giving more and more examples and explanations, creating an
interested atmosphere that student can concentrate while I'm teaching.I aslo move around the
class to help students.In this time my lesson plan is not good than the first time and overview
everything is good. However, there was mistake in my lesson. That is, I made some mistakes in
pronunciation. I have to prepare the lesson plan carefully next time.

Listening
In my last period, I taught listening. First, I read the content of the lesson in the book
carefully. Second, I searched the internet to get some information . Third, I asked Miss Trinh to
get some useful advice how to teach. Then, I designed the lesson by using PowerPoint. After
that, I proceeded to teach at home three times to remember the procedures of the lesson. Finally,
the teaching day has come.
In warm up part, I introduce the game Guessing the name of the song ?. My
students listen to my explanations and I showed the rule of the game. Teacher will randomly
turn on the audio that contains the song all the students have to guess.After listening to the
song,the group raising their hand first will have the right to give the answer.There are 5 questions
totally,which group having more correct answers will be the winner of the game.Then I turn on
the audio of the song and require students to guess the name of it.After that, students stand up
and give the answer. It helped students to excite and enthusiasm at the beginning of lesson

After playing game,I show the question on the screen:What do you think about all
these songs?How do you feel about all these songs? and lead in the new lesson:Asking for and
giving opinions,agreeing and disagreeing.
Then ,I ask students open their books (page 48) and read the requirement of exercise.
Before listening,teacher teach some vocabularies that help student a lot when they listen. I also
explain the meaning of new words and give students fonemic transcription. I ask some students
to stand up and read out the new words.
Before moving onto exercise 2, I ask students to describe pictures on the screen,using
some vocabularies they have just learned before. After that,I require students to do the exercise 2
individually.I also give hand out for students.After turning the volume 2 times for students to
listen I ask some students to stand up and give out their answer.Finally,I show the correct answer
on the screen and explain.
After 2 periods, I became more confident and active. So, in this lesson, I taught very
fluently and confident. The students were very active and eager to study. However, there were
also some problems during the class. I think it would be better if I got closer to students and help
them with difficulties. I used both English and Vietnamese. But in some cases, I should give
clearer directions because of some students did not understand what they really had to do.
From this class, I had a chance to work with friendly students. Thanks for their cooperations,
I love the teaching career much more than before.

IV. CHAPTER 4:
CONCLUSION

1.DIFFICULTIES ENCOUNTERED:
My difficulties encountered during the internship period are as follow: First of all, it was
not easy for my group to find classes in order to practice teaching. Some teachers did not
enthusiastically support us because they felt suspiciously that we did not have enough ability and
confidence to teach their students. They worried we would slow down the process of their
teaching.
Second, that is the matter of time. The time for teaching in class was limited so I had to
face some difficulties in dividing time to teach. Each period is only 45 minutes but the lessons
were quite long so it was not enough time to teach within 45 minutes. Moreover, nearly half
students in class felt tired and uncomfortable which reduced attentive ability of students.
Besides, they are not English major students; English is a compulsory subject to them so they felt
bored or not interested in English.
Third, limitations of the school: classroom too small, number of students too large: 45
students in class cannot pay attention to my lesson and it was difficult for me to divide the class
into groups so that my lessons could be effective and it was not easy to manage students like as.
In addition, some classrooms lacked equipment or their equipment was not good such as plugs-in
which could not be used and lack of fans, air condition, projectors and so on.
Furthermore, I also lacked experiences and communication skill with students was still
weak, it was not easy for an intern to completely convince students pay attention to my lesson
the way lively and interesting, I also could not find the best teaching method in order to prepare
and help them understand my lesson in the first time. Although, the interns were also faced with
some difficulties during the internship period but my borrowed reference books to help me to
teach better, besides that they have also encouraged me spiritually to help me become more
confident.

2.NEW SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE GAINED


During my internship period, I have learned that a lot of useful things to myself through
my senior supervisors and the members in my group helped me. At the same time, it was the first
experience I had that taught me to listen to other peoples ideas and opinions that I had never

before considered and helped me to develop some new ways of thinking about the same
problems.
First, I have some teaching experiences, in the process of teaching I have realized that
preparing a lesson is very important because if I have good lesson plan, I will make a good
performance in front of class. I also have known how to make students more lively and enjoyable
instead of feeling bored or not paying attention to the lesson.
Second, I know how to balance time, the ways to arrange time were right in process of
lesson plan and focus on the main parts in lesson plan, the ways to choose the best teaching
methods help students understand easier and focus on the main parts of the lesson. I have learnt
how to contact with students and understand them. We should talk to them before starting a
lesson and if we want all students in class cooperate with us we also should give some small
games in class help students to feel more interesting and enjoyable when the lesson starts such as
guessing words, matching games, arranging games and so on. Besides that, I also helped me
more confident and dynamic when I talk to them or the ways to handle with my students so I can
control the class more easily and convenient, and I believe I have enough confidence to manage
when the class becomes noisy. In process of teaching practice I have a lot of chances to
communicate with students more so I could know a few students psychology. Furthermore,
when I paid attention at some period of members in-group I realized one thing that I should say
some funny things from the lesson to break the boring atmosphere.
Over the internship, I have a chance to improve and practice my weak skills as well as
my strong points help me more perfectly about myself both the knowledge and the experiences.
In my opinions, to be able to learn English effectively, teachers and students need to have
intimate relationships, in other to students to easy exchange ideas, as well as questions about the
lesson with the teacher.

3.RECOMMENDATIONS OR SUGGESTIONS
I think teaching English method in Viet Nam should have some innovation. Firstly, the
majority of teachers still use very old and out-of-dated teaching and educational methods which
are heavy on imparting knowledge and do not emphasize on training students the independent
and creative thinking methods as well as right attitudes towards learning and life. Teacher should
give students more practice and use CLT method in some cases to make the class lively more
than using grammar translation method. Next, government should built many English center and
popularize the important of English in country sides. Teacher should pay attention to
pronunciation nor intonation and limit to use mother tongue in teaching to make the period more
interesting. Besides, national education system is really need to improve, students should
practice with foreign teacher more regularly one side they can improve their skills , other sides it
will make their psychology is stable and not confusing even they met the foreign outside the
school. In my opinion English teacher should upgrade their knowledge and teaching method so
that our country can catch up with other country in Asia.
Thanks to IUH and FFL that I have opportunities for teaching practice. But I think that
IUH and FFL should give students add time for internship. Thanks for all things to help me
complete my graduate internship. I will try to best for complete myself.
