The portfolio reflects the student's individual teaching situation as well as the application of theory and practice from course work taken at the WLI. It entails the preparation of four thematic units utilizing the communicative approach to language. Two units are to be based on the textbook and teaching situation of the candidate; the other two units are to be 'dream' units, in which the candidate develops age-appropriate materials that would be the ideal.
