TEFL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Kim
Kim is living in America and in this TEFL review she discusses the 120-hour online TEFL course with tutor support and videos from ITTT. Kim took the course without any prior teaching experience and was initially worried that she would find the course very difficult to complete. In the end she found the experience to be very enjoyable with plenty of information provided in the online course materials. Kim also found the tutor support and feedback to be helpful and would definitely recommend the course to those planning on teaching English.
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.
Like the pervious unit, this unit as as well is very important. Writing and speaking is a challenge for many. There are many factors regarding why a child is reluctant to speak or write, but ultimately as a teacher you must teach it in a non-threatening environment where students understand its okay to take risks. Especially considering that we learn from our mistakes. I love incorporating games into the classroom. Students respond really well to learning through hands on activities such as games, they are always excited and motivated to do their best. Which as a teacher is a great feeling!In the first video there was hardly any contact between the teacher and the students. The teacher had too much expectation from the students on their knowledge of the English language. The teacher was uninterested and uninteresting. The students were reluctant to participate in the class because they seemed not to understand the teacher. In the second video the teacher was engaging with the students which made them more open and eager to participate. The teacher was more respectful towards the students by addressing them by their names. The students were more at ease with a smiling teacher.
