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

Personally, I have gained much wisdom from this course. Before beginning the course I had some english teaching experience in foreign countries. I now realize the importance of structure and planning in each lesson and especially the idea of building lesson upon lesson like blocks on a wall. Regular reviews are also necessary. Though many of the concepts I was already familiar with from my previous job experience, it was quite helpful to see TEFL?s perspective on teaching children vs. adults, beginners vs. advanced students etc. As always it is important for the teacher to know, understand and eventually adapt to the each and every student as much as possible. However the task which I valued most was when I was requested to ACTUALLY write out lesson plans. This is good material that I plan on using in my future career!
