TEFL 120-hour Course - Unit 2

 

In this episode of Chantelle’s TEFL diary she takes us through her experiences with the second unit of her online TEFL course. Unit 2 of ITTT’s 120-hour TEFL course focuses on parts of speech; nouns, verbs, adjectives etc. As Chantelle points out in her video, having a basic understanding of the rules behind parts of speech is an important part of being an English teacher and is something that many native speakers of English take for granted. Although, as native speakers, we may instinctively know when and where to use the different parts of speech; understanding how to explain the rules to an English learner is a very different matter.


Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching. This convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.

From this unit I learnt the key points for the evaluation the students and types of tests handles in different cases. I see the importance of getting a feedback from the young learners after finishing the course. I found out about how to design syllabus in a way it will give the best progress for the students. The links and examples of the tests are useful.In this unit, I learned the various themes that I can use to effectively deliver my lesson to young learners. These themes are songs, chants, music, games, stories, arts, crafts and drama. I also learned how to adapt each activity based on the level or group where the learner belongs to. I also learned how to incorporate these themes in various lesson plans.
