TEFL Videos - ITTT - International TEFL and TESOL Training - TEFL TESOL Courses - Overview
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.
This unit was on books and materials used in an ESL classroom. I learned the advantages and disadvantages of using authentic materials vs those I could create myself. Unit 14 gave some great examples of created course materials. I also learned the pros and cons of course books. It is beneficial to use material from the course book because it is expected by the students and there is a syllabus already. Also, there is usually a balance of grammar, vocabulary and skills work. However to make the lessons more interesting and less predictable, it is a good idea to supplement with other materials and activities. Combining both authentic and created materials can best meet the needs of the students. The unit ended with great guidance on analyzing a course book!
