• I have gained a great deal from taking this course. Although I am a native english
speaker, this course has showed me what I have forgotten about the english
grammar. It was a very good refresher (although difficult at times) to practice english
grammar again. I can't say I really enjoyed learning it again, but it was definitely useful. Mostly, I have learned various types of teaching skills and different ways to approach new situations in the classroom. I did not study to be a teacher
in school, so this course was very helpful at giving examples of how a classroom structure should be run from the teacher
's point of view. Planning lessons has helped me develop lesson plans for the class I am currently teaching.
• I plan to use my certificate
to teach in foreign countries. Currently I am in South Korea teaching. This school did not require me the tefl
, but it has been very helpful for my first month here to have some of the background from this tefl course
. I plan to go to other countries, such as Taiwan and china
, where many schools want the teacher
s to have the tefl certification
. I plan to take with me all the units I have completed and hopefully be able to apply
the techniques I have learned to create a dynamic, exciting lesson for foreign students.
• This class has helped me feel more confident in the classroom. I know there are many different activities that I can do to help the students learn.
