TEFL Videos - How do I get a job teaching English in Korea?
This is what one of our TEFL graduates feels he has gained from the course, or a part of it, and how he plans to put into action what he has learned.
The most I got from the reported speech lesson was that a lot of english speakers don't even use it correctly. Most native english speakers would assume what the reporter meant, but a new speaker would be totally lost with that kind of instinct. I'm glad that there are clear rules about speaking with clarity, that way a student would know what kinds of questions to ask, in order to clear up a misunderstanding. I would think that these conditionals and reported speech patterns would need to be broken up into several lessons. I think that the diagram would also aid in student comprehension.Very simple area for me to use but can be confusing to teach students this. I have never heard of the five main conditionals but have always used them. This is an area where I spoken to many foreigners and they have trouble understanding this area. These five main conditionals help break down areas to properly teach the students in segments. Knowing your audience is also important here. Some of this seemed to be for students with more knowledge of the English language. However if the teaching practices are done in the correct way, younger learners could also gain knowledge in this area.
