TEFL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Ben
Ben taught English in South Korea for four years before returning to his native California. In this TEFL review he describes how after returning home, he decided to seek out further qualifications in teaching English and found ITTTâ€™s online TEFL course was the right one for him. Despite teaching English for several years, Ben found that the course had several new things to teach him including new methods and techniques.
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.
I learned more about how to get students to talk more and decrease teacher talk time. I didn't realize that classroom arrangement had so much affect on the participation of the students, but after this unit I see how I can use physical positioning to my advantage when trying to get shy Asian students to participate in activities they don't think are necessary. I see how I could use the variations to create more interest throughout the lesson and keep students engaged. I always valued teacher/student rapport, but I never thought about how student/student rapport could be useful to me as a teacher.
