TEFL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Dawn
Dawn decided to take an online TEFL course with ITTT to enable her to take advantage of the high demand for English teachers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. In this TEFL review video Dawn describes her experience of taking ITTT's 120-hour online course with tutor support.
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 introduced several brand new concepts and vocabulary to me regarding pronunciation and phonetics. I learned about the various parts of the mouth and throat that function in producing different sounds. Learning the phonemic symbols was also helpful to me as I have always seen the symbols when looking up words but never knew what symbol corresponded to what sound. One last point that really resonated with me was the difficulty for learners on how similar spellings and letter arrangements for words could result in totally different sounds and pronunciations, a characteristic of English.Unit 17 Equipment and Teaching aids tells about different materials a teacher may use in teaching in the classroom. The most common are board, worksheets and workcards, visual aids, overhead projectors, cds or tape recordings, video recording, dictionaries, computers and online research. Some uses Interactive whiteboard (IWB) for teaching aid but before using this technology it is advisable to always check and test it to avoid any issues in the class discussion. There are a lot of visual aids materials nowadays but it is impprtant to be creative and interactive to keep the students motivated.
