TEFL 120-hour Course - Unit 4


In this video diary entry, Chantelle discusses unit 4 of her TEFL course. This unit covers the present tenses; present simple, present continuous, present perfect and present perfect continuous. The structures, usages and possible teaching ideas for each tense are outlined in the unit as well as common errors made by learners. The tenses are an aspect of the language that many native speakers of English struggle with as they are not explicitly taught in schools and, as Chantelle mentions, this was one of the more difficult units she has studied so far in the course.

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course.

Evaluating and testing is very important to the teacher, it help's the placement test is use when commercing a new course which help the teacher to which class to put the student. Progress test is used to know how the student is understanding the course. Evaluation has the teacher to know the strength or weakness of the students and how they are progressing.While reading this lesson I realized it is a shame that most schools in Taiwan focus so much more on accuracy than fluency. I taught at a cram school of 4-6 year old. The entire year was drilling the phonics sounds. I wish the school took some TESOL lessons and realized that their way is totally incorrect. It should be a mixture of both accuracy and fluency.
