This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
S.V. – U.S. said:
I entered this course feeling confident in my understanding of english and how I might go about teaching. While I haven’t lost this confidence, I have been humbled and directed to further study in the course of this certification.
Some of the most difficult units covered were the grammar units. Having difficulties with the grammar of my native tongue has given me even more appreciation for those learning the language. I also feel that I have a much better perspective on how to form lesson plans and the types of activities and considerations involved. This course has also given me many resources that will help in my teaching career (i.e. websites, book recommendations, and the units themselves).
Overall, I found this course very helpful. It has helped to prepare me as a teacher through many vital areas such as lesson planning and learning to adapt to the students. I have gained much from this course and I’m sure it will benefit me and countless others in the classroom.
