TEFL Videos - From Student to Teacher in 6 Easy Steps
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.
The two videos show very different approaches to a lesson in structure and attitude. The second video is far more effective as the students are engaging, comfortable, not scared to participate and get clear direction the lesson. The teacher in the second video also facilitates the worksheet and far better by walking around and engaging the students when they have questions. The Teacher also sets a better atmosphere in the second video by asking the names of the students in the beginning of the class. The teacher also smiles and and makes the students feel more comfortable to participate.Unit 12 discussed the importance of writing and speaking and the various issues a teacher must consider. The unit discussed the concept of accuracy vs fluency and the role they play within the lesson. An accuracy activity focuses on using the language correctly however fluency allows the student to be creative and experiment with the language. Students need both elements if they are to communicate effectively. From the lesson I learned the various apprehensions a student encounters whilst learning to speak and how i must be aware of these when giving activities to students in the future.
