I have gained a lot from this course. In terms of grammar this course was a great refresher course, since I have not taught grammar in a very long time. This will come in handy if I have to teach beginners in the future. I also learned a variety of teaching methods from this course which I?d like to apply in the near future. What?s great about the teaching methods taught in this course is that they can be applied to students of all different levels. In addition I learned about various levels of students and some of the problems they may encounter when studying english. This was helpful because it helped me to understand what problems some students may encounter and how to deal with them. However I think one of the most useful things I gained from this course was the feedback I received from my online tutors, Mike and Jon. All teachers have different methods of teaching and different teaching styles, so it was great to get feedback from Mike and Jon. Their shared personal experiences and feedback helped me think of things that I had not considered. It?s always great to hear from other teachers because I?m always trying see how I can improve and find new ways to teach.
