TEFL Videos - English Grammar - Future Perfect - Structure - Teaching English Abroad
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.
Teachers need to evaluate their studentsâ€™ English to determine whether the students are making any progress in their learning. A teacher also needs to evaluate students at the beginning of a course to be able to identify their needs or problem areas. An evaluation is also useful for correct placement. Conducting periodic evaluations and keeping records is also very useful because teachers can easily refer to these in case there would be a problem in the future. Evaluating studentsâ€™ English will also let the teacher know if the aims of the lessons are being met or if changes are needed.This unit went over the different types of class groups that an EFL teacher would find themselves teaching. Teaching beginners, one on one classes, teaching children, businesses, and finally mono-lingual and multi-lingual courses. This unit went over the advantages and disadvantages of each, common pitfalls and good approaches. I feel that this is a very valuable unit. This shows that EFL teacher isn't a blanket term and just like any other career there are paths to take and specialties. Each path would require different soft and hard skills and one would need to be prepared for what lies ahead.
