TEFL 120-hour Course - Unit 6


In this instalment of Chantelle’s TEFL course video diary she talks about the sixth unit. Unit 6 covers the past tenses; past simple, past continuous, past perfect and past perfect continuous. As with Unit 4, this unit describes the structure and common usages of the tenses as well pointing out common mistakes and providing teaching ideas that can be used in the classroom. Although not her favourite unit, Chantelle thought it was well laid out with good test questions and support.

This unit has help understand in a simplified way the importance of creating a structure before each lesson. It's also comforting to know that with time and experience lesson planning will become easier, it will be helpful to be able to let the students decide what they would like to talk about in class without feeling unprepared. l think being flexible in the lesson is important to help run the lesson in a smooth manner and that fixing oneself too much on the plan of the lesson creates more of a fixed lesson and doesn't allow an open space for adapting.
