TEFL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Julia
This TESOL review was recorded by ITTT graduate Julia. Julia is a full time college student with a full time job and her situation shows just how beneficial ITTTâ€™s online courses are for those with a very busy schedule. Despite studying and working full time Julia was still able to find time to complete her course without feeling pressured to complete more than she was comfortable with. Although Julia found the final lesson planning task to be particularly challenging she found the experience to be rewarding and can see how overcoming the challenge will benefit her future 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.
Course books are a very emotive issue for many schools and teachers. Some of them swear by them while others despise them. The choice of how we can use the course book is a quite complex issue. In an ideal world schools,they would have all the books and materials to support different teaching style and different aims from learners.The materials can be divided into two groups-Authentic materials and created materials. Besides we should know more about course books on the advantages,disadvantages and the best use of the course books.It's very clearly explained in this unit for an ESL teacher.In this unit, I learned the processes of creating a lesson plan. I learned the reasons to make lesson plans and also what you need to include in each lesson plan. There was also an example of a lesson plan that someone else created. After this, the unit went over activities in how to teach certain grammar points. The main idea of creating lesson plans is that lesson plans help you create organized, well prepared and appropriate lessons for your students; however, you must be able to be flexible during the class period to make sure the students are getting what they need on that certain day.
