TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - TEFL Video Journal - Linda, Part 5

 

Linda lives in China and is taking the 120-hour TEFL course with ITTT. This is the fifth installment of her TEFL review video journal outlining her experiences on the course. In this video Linda tells us about unit 5 of the course which covers aspects of classroom management. The unit has plenty of useful information on how students can be grouped within class and the types of activities that are suitable for different groupings. It also covers ways of dealing with problem behavior and methods for engaging students when they may not be interested in learning. At a quarter of the way through the course Linda is still clearly excited about earning her TEFL certificate.


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.

The methods a teacher could employ when teaching vocabulary, new language structures and functions are the raison d’etre of Unit 7. The words that the students learn should be based on factors such as the words’ usability to the students. The familiar ESA, Patchwork and Boomerang approaches from past units are revisited as they are equally applicable.This unit was a quite short unit, even though the material covered is a very important one. Every unit in a language class should contain all the aspects mentioned intelocked. Students need vocabulary, grammar, and lots of opportunities to practice it. Not much new to me again, as I've been teaching for a while now. I know it's repetitive but what else can I say.
