The focus of numerous studies in recent years has been on the teaching practicum of English language teachers. However, most of those studies mainly looked at program graduates who became teachers. In this study, the educational merit of teaching practice in secondary schools is assessed. Three evaluation criteria for gauging the educational value of teaching practice are created for this purpose based on a literature research and interviews. They are as follows: (1) Practical teaching competence; (2) teacher preparation; and (3) character maturity. The information was gathered through reflective diaries and semi-structured questionnaires, and it underwent thematic content analysis for analysis. Results showed that three themes, including pedagogical techniques, professional identity development, and pleasant sentiments development, could be used to categories the learning outcomes of student teachers.
