TEFL Videos - TEFL 120-hour Course - Unit 6
In this instalment of Chantelleâ€™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 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.
No material will be perfect for satisfying every need. Sometimes we need something premade for the sake of time. Sometimes we need to create something or adapt it because material in the main book is too broad or not specific to the needs of the particular culture, mother language, or language level of the learner(s). Also, sometimes, created materials are more suited because of limited ability of the class, whereas other times it is more suitable for authentic materials which can be seen or heard in real life. This will often provoke more excitement as it is seen as useful in real life.After having unit seven I realize that there are lots of important things for teachers to know, especially for those teachers who teach English to speakers of other languages because there are lots of differences and difficulties with what students should know and should not know about new language they study. I got information about a different techniques and methods which foreign teachers can use during their classes , how and when it is better to use those methods and techniques during the class. Also there is a very big importance of ESA methods during teaching new language .
