TEFL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Dahlia
Dahlia is a graduate of ITTT's 120-hour online TESOL course. In this TESOL review, she recommends the course for anyone thinking of earning a TESOL or TEFL certificate especially those with backgrounds in teaching and education. ITTT's courses assume no prior teaching knowledge so are suitable for complete beginners to English language teaching or those looking to refresh their skills.
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.
Unit 19 deals with teaching special groups. Several points in this lesson were completely new to me, especially the Needs Analysis. The example Needs Analysis sheet is greatly appreciated. I also liked the section 'Avoiding the use of the mother tongue in the classroom.' I believe that a lot of these suggestions are good just for effective classroom communication in general ('Starting with 'open' pair work,' 'Making sure the students have the English to do what you ask,' etc.). All of these points, in fact, are worth taking into consideration even when use of the mother tongue isn't an issue.
