Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching. This convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.
This unit introduces us to receptive skills, which are listening and reading. We mainly use these skills either for a purpose or for entertainment. When teaching these skills to students we must make sure to use a broad range of topics that will be of interest to the students, for example famous movies or songs. Once interest has been garnered the following tasks shouldn't be too hard for students, but rather focus on giving students the ability to understand the content. Naturally, we use an ESA plan format when structuring these lessons in order to have an effective lesson.
