This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
I feel as though the most important thing I have learned from this course is making sure that most of your lesson is student centered. I don't think this is something I would have realized on my own, but it makes so much sense. I plan to make sure that my lessons make the students the center of them by putting myself in their position and thinking about the best way that I, or the majority of people, would learn. I feel as though if I do this, along with lesson planning, I can make sure to keep the students at the center of the lesson. Of course this is not ideal at ALL times, but I will use my discretion and make sure that the lesson is always in the best interest of the students.
I am also glad I took the course because it refreshed my memory on so many things that don't remember from elementary school. All the various rules and grammatical usages that just come naturally to me now were re-taught to me and I was taught how to teach them, which is fantastic. This course will be a great reference to me throughout the time I spend teaching overseas and I'm very glad I took it.
