Alison from the United States describes her experiences as a TESOL/TEFL student with ITTT in this TESOL review. Alison chose to do ITTT's combined certification course.
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.
Growing up, I prided myself as being one of the best students in my English class and for easily understanding grammar related to punctuation and spelling. It wasn't until I read this unit that I realized how many exceptions there are to different parts of speech and how often I take my native fluency for granted. I also finally learned what a gerund was, and my familiarity of gerunds in Korean solidified my learning. Now that I understand these parts of speech from a student's point of view, I will do my best to create easy ways to comprehend and teach parts of speech in my ESL class abroad.This lesson reviewing reported speech, direct speech, and conditionals is a rather tricky subject, even for native English speakers. When teaching these lessons, it is imperative to review the material slowly and to utilize many modes of review in order to help students thoroughly understand and review the materials, as there are many changes that are made in English, which creates many opportunities for mistakes and confusion for students. As a teacher, we need to ensure that we are presenting the material in a manner that is not too intimidating and is open to understanding and exploration.
