TEFL Videos - Etiquette Asia
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.
I learned there are two types of materials in the classroom. Authentic materials are things that a native speaker may be exposed to such as newspapers, magazines, brochures, etc. Created materials are made by the teacher and can include crosswords, gap fill sheets, word searches, etc. There are advantages and disadvantages to using a course book and they need to be considered. A course book typically has a syllabus but an over reliance on a course book can make a teacher lazy. Factors that need to be considered when selecting a course book can include price, methodology, difficulty etc.Conditionals and reported speech are very important to know because it is part of how we speak on a daily basis and I think all student should learn how to use it correctly. There can be enormous difficulty and mistakes when student do it for the first time and a teacher should handle it very carefully to help the student correct. Student should already have the knowledge of past and present tense before doing reported speech with them. I also think it is best to first play a game on reported speech to see what the students already know and how they report news and then work from there.
