CX offers exam/test preparation classes for teachers needing to pass the Spanish Minnesota Teacher Licensure Examinations (MTLE). These classes are designed for those teacher candidates who have not yet been successful in their exams and for teachers who will take them for the first time.
Through our test preparation for the MTLE either while studying in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala, or taking classes online via skype, the future Spanish teacher not only will improve his/her language skills but will also be able to raise their score on the test without the stress and anxiety.
The exam preparation is based on the content areas of the test: Listening, reading comprehension, linguistic and language structure, cultural understanding, and written which covers the content in sub-tests 1 and 2. After passing this exam, teacher candidates will be able to obtain their K–12 license and the K–8 endorsement.
CX teachers have over 25 years of teaching experience. They have knowledge of this test, as well as others, plus the language skills to know how to prepare to pass exams.
The format for the instruction is one-on-one, five hours daily, five days a week including homestay with a Guatemalan family. Living with a Guatemalan family will enhance your cultural and linguistic experience.
You are welcome to bring the MTLE Expanded Study Guide and NES Practice: Spanish.
We highly recommend taking at least four weeks of instruction to give you that advantage you need to pass the test in a confident way. However, if you feel that you are a lower level, you might want to consider more weeks of preparation.
