TEFL Videos - How much does a TEFL course cost?
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.
Generally, I found this unit to be instructive. It provided me with a critique of my own teaching techniques, and how I might improve as a teacher. For example, I feel that sometimes I may be too quick to correct a student. Conversely, I may not offer praise as much as I should. With regard to the 9 listed methods, I found them to be somewhat confusing in that several seemed to overlap rather than be singularly distinct. The Silent Way and Community Language Learning seem to be similar in method, despite the fact that CLL students determine what will be the foacl point of the lesson.Unit 5 is all about how to go about managing classes as a teacher. It lists various ways in which eye contact and gestures can be put to good use in the classroom, and the importance one's voice can have when teaching. The unit discusses the advantages and disadvantages of students working on their own, as a pair, or in large groups. It also discusses the varying ways in which classroom layout can be put to good use. It also discusses ways in which to improve instruction giving, maintaining discipline, and the importance of establishing a good rapport between the teacher and the students.
