This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:

Looking back at the course, I really have fELT that I have gained, grown and learnt a lot. Although my first language is english, I feel I have learnt a great deal about the english language. I have learnt various teaching skills, which I will now be able to take with me and be to apply to all areas of expertise in the future. I feel that I am able to delegate instructions and problem-solve situations more effectively now with patience, hard work and determination. With a growing confidence in the english grammar now, I feel that I have gained the confidence to teach efficiently and can really assist in a learner?s second language acquisition. Through effective lesson planning, fun and interesting activities and good class materials that are suitable for the language level I plan to teach, I plan to put this into action and really give it everything. EFL methodology has really shown me how important it is to plan your lessons. The ESA structure has helped me to see how effective a well thought out and structured lesson plan can be. Classroom management is important, as it is the skill of organising and managing the class, having a friendly disposition and maintaining discipline. I want my future students to not only succeed in the english language, but to enjoy coming to class. For a class to be able to learn effectively, the teacher must be able to inspire confidence in the students. english is now the universal language and is spoken by people all around the world. Being an english teacher in a different country is going to be a rewarding experience. I have fELT I have gained a new perspective. I am looking forward to a future TEFL career where I can utilise my teaching skills in italy. The course was thoroughly enjoyable and has inspired and motivated me to become the best english teacher I can be.
