TEFL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Alina
Alina lives in Bucharest in Romania and has been teaching English there for several years. In her TEFL review video she explains how she chose to take the 120-hour online TEFL course with tutor support and videos from ITTT in order to receive professional training in English language teaching. After researching online, Alina decided that the online course from ITTT best suited her needs to be able to study while also working, which gave her the chance to apply what she was learning to her classes as she progressed through the course. Alina is looking forward to further study with a course in teaching English to young learners.
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.
Receptive skills and productive skills are basic and essential in language learning. They are closely interrelated and effects each other.Well-developed receptive skills are helpful in the development of productive skills. When communicating with others, only when we fully understand what we heard, we will be able to response appropriately. As it mentioned in the unit, convention also plays a big part in understanding what we heard or read. As a teacher, helping students understand the convention of a language is as important as supporting them with the vocabulary and grammatical knowledge.Unit 1 was a good lesson because I learned what specific needs/wants it takes both to be a good teacher as well as a good student - and since I am not professionally a teacher - for this lesson I am both teacher and student! Also, I am currently trying to learn the Spanish so it is interesting to see where I fall within the \"Language Level\" scenario as well as gauge my own interest in learning a new language. I am 44 years old am happy to find out I have most of the qualities of a good learner - so I'm hoping that bodes well that I will also have many of the qualities of good teachers :)
