This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
This course re-taught me a lot about the various nuances of the english language that I know instinctively as a native speak but had forgotten how to pinpoint and break down. I learned not just about these nuances themselves but also about how to teach these nuances to other people, some of whom have no understanding of the english language at all. Knowing something and knowing how to teach the same thing to other people requires two different skill sets, and this course did a great job of helping me gain knowledge in the latter set. I also learned about how to deal with different types of situations, problems, and people groups, all of which could have overwhelmed me had I started teaching without this training. Finally, I learned how to take all the different things I learned and the advice on how to handle situations, and adapt this knowledge to the classes I will teach and those students' needs, instead of just repeating/redoing what I learned here without any thought of my own.
I plan to put this knowledge into action first by tutoring students or teaching in a language program here in the States. I think it will be a good way for me to start out and get into the practice of teaching. Somewhere down the road I would like to go abroad to teach, particularly to Asia, but for now I am content to be where I am and to hone my skills.
