TEFL Videos - Should I take a TEFL course online or in a classroom?
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 covered the definition, types, and use of modal and phrasal verbs, and the passive voice. I never realised how important grammar is for verbal communication, until I understood exactly where I have communication problems with my ESL fiancee. It is when I speak using proper grammar that I am completely misunderstood and have to speak her broken English to regain communication. I had been under the misunderstanding that our communication was going to be as easy as it was through texts and phone conversations. However, I had been speaking her type of English without proper grammar.The units within this course that have to do with grammar always tend to be a bit more of a challenge and take me a longer period of time to complete. However, through many units of trial and error I think I have come across a method of studying that both helps me retain knowledge and understand the concepts behind the usage of these various grammar points. I believe that learning my own strengths and weaknesses in regard to the English language will help me better be able to teach my students. These units, to me, are the most important because they help me better plan for future lessons.
