Reviews of BSEd in English graduates:

E. J.
◈ Studied BSE in English
◈ At Philippine Normal University
◈ Graduated 2014

list bulletWhy did I choose BSEd in English: Because English is the subject where I excelled the most during high school. Aside from that, I liked to follow the footsteps of my grandfather and grandmother who were teachers themselves. We are actually a family of teachers.

list bulletAbout my college education: I have learned various pedagogical strategies and techniques on how to teach English. Not only that, we were taught how to use literature as a springboard for teaching as well. Because that is the reason why we are branded as English teachers, not literature teachers.

The most useful things that I have learned and probably the subject which I enjoyed the most are Literary Criticism, and my pedagogical subject namely: Teaching Writing, Teaching Grammar, Teaching and Testing Literature, Teaching Writing, and Teaching Listening and Speaking.

The exams are dependent on the way how my professors make their exams so the difficulty is whether their testing styles is different from your learning style/the way you review your lessons. None of my batch mates shifted to another course but some dropped out because of financial difficulties.

list bulletMy current job: I don't have a job yet.
I am reviewing for the upcoming Licensure Examination for Teachers.

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: Try to read books as early as today, especially the classics. It will be easier to make occasional papers and such if you are a wide reader. Aside from that, you should have the patience to pursue what you really want to be and that is to become an English teacher!
