TEFL Videos - English Grammar - Past Perfect Continuous - Teaching Ideas - TESL
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 is by far the hardest of all units. English speakers just simply talk the way they talk, I am aware of phonics but I didn't know about the overwhelming technical terms used in describing, addressing, differentiating each words. This is very important for non-English speakers to learn. It is also important to base the intonation on how the speaker feels at the time of speaking. One time a Japanese co-teacher asked me about my pronunciation of the word "Japanese" and I said "JApanese" with stress at the "JA". He then compared my pronunciation to his English speaking gadget that pronounced "japaNESE". We should not base our pronunciation mainly on how we are taught or how the gadget said it should be, we should always watch movies, listen to music to improve our diction, pronunciation etc.
