After having graduated from the TPC 1/18 course at DITC, a group of experienced language teachers now also have extensive pronunciation teaching skills. Many of these students had already completed the MELT course and have been teaching for a while, so for their teachers, it was gratifying to see their development in the meantime. According to their spokesperson, the returning students see their teachers as 'godparents', guiding their 'children' on their path to becoming even better teachers... a role that they will themselves take on in the near future.
