TEFL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - John
In this TEFL review, John from the Philippines tells us that he enjoyed taking the 120-hour online TEFL course from ITTT and found the information provided in the course units to be very helpful. During the course John learned about the ESA method of teaching English, reviewed his English language knowledge and picked up a number of tips and tricks for use in his lessons. The course also covers different levels of language learners and different types of classes such as one-on-one classes and business English classes.
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.
In this unit i got to understand the definition of a good teacher- a teacher that really cares about teaching and even more caring to the learning of the students. Also various important roles of a teacher in class and also in the course of the lessons, Like managing ,taking control of the class and activities, providing feedback and evaluation, organising lessons and activities,being a model to good grammar and vocabulary and pronunciation . Learned about what a good Learner should be and also different levels of learners and what basically might motivate them to attend english classes.This unit was particularly interesting because it showed how sounds and words are produced. Pronunciation is often very difficult to teach but this unit introduced effective ways on how to teach students pronunciation, such as using visual diagrams, using your own mouth, and peer dictation. Although most students don't learn the phonetic alphabet, it is important for teachers of English to understand how sounds are produced. I found the place and manner of articulation particularly usefull because if the teacher correctly knows how a sound is formed, students can understand it more easily.
