TEFL Videos - English Lesson - I wish/If only
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.
There are three tenses in English; past, present and future, and each covers four forms. This can make it a challenge to teach in for example Asian countries, where there's usually only the present tense. This unit taught me about the present tense, and its four different forms; present simple, present continuous, present perfect and present perfect continuous. On each form, it's described how to build up a sentence as a affirmative, negative and questioning sentence. The unit covers the specifications on when to use which form, common errors and some ideas of activities to use in class.This unit has identified the various Theories, methods and techniques used in teaching. Grammar-translation, suggestopaedia, task-based, the lexical approach are few out of many. Presentation, practice and production (PPP) is one method that is still been used by teachers but the ESA that is Engage, Study and Activate which was put forward by Jeremy Harmer is a very effective method that combines all the necessary attributes needed in the classroom. This method is also known for its flexibility. I have also learnt about how important feedback is and the various ways of giving corrections
