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.
Picking classroom material can be difficult, if, as this lesson mentioned, the teacher is allowed to have any say at all. But, should that opportunity arise, there were many good points listed as a starting place for a new teacher to use in evaluating books and materials. One hard thing about finding extra source material is the financial part. Not all teachers have print budgets, etc. to help as they supplement their lessons. A lot of that can be done on the board or with the students' own paper, but it does take some thought to figure out how to transition an activity.
