TEFL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Dan
Dan from Ukraine completed the 120-hour online TEFL course from ITTT. In this TEFL review video Dan tells us that he is currently teaching in China. The course gave Dan a lot of insight into teaching as well as plenty of materials and lesson plan ideas that he can use in his classes. Dan recommends signing up if you are thinking of teaching English abroad.
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.
This unit focused on teaching different group. I have learnt that teachers have to use different teaching styles to teach different levels of learners. Children learn very quickly but they arenâ€™t as motivated as adult learners as it is hard for them to see the benefits of learning another language. They also have lots of energy and are distracted easily. It is important to acknowledge any work which the child completes and to make sure the lesson moves along before the students are bored. Lots of visual aids are also important. Teachers need to be very patient when teaching beginners.The Phonemic Chart is one of the most useful charts or diagrams made to help English learners to pronounce and read. However, it will be quite difficult to learn the symbols as it will be like learning an alphabet of a new language all over again for most students. A brief introduction of the symbols, have a few exercises on vocabulary that will be difficult to pronounce and predicting common mistakes while also asking students to read short stories or sentences read out lout will be one of the most effective way to practice not only vocabulary pronunciation but also stress and intonation.
