TEFL Videos - ITTT's Specialized Courses
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 first unit provided me with the basic understanding and knowledge needed to fully succeed in this qualification. It is an important unit as it shows the different characteristics needed and different roles that as a teacher I will need to be able to effectively fulfill. The unit also thoroughly explains the factors, needed to consider when teaching, factors that will also determine the student's success or failure. To further the students success different language levels are mentioned and explained and are needed to be considered when determining how and what to teach the students.Unit 16 covers the English grammar subjects of conditionals and reported speech. Different forms of conditional sentences are examined and teaching techniques provided. Direct speech and reported speech are compared, noting the number of changes that take place when direct speech becomes reported speech. Much of this unit is new material for me. I have learned several new concepts such as the 5 main types of conditional statements and the idea of \"backshifting\". I understand the need to go slowly and be thorough when teaching these grammar skills due to the high potential for mistakes.
