TEFL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Laura
In this TEFL review, Laura from Romania talks about how she took the course because she wants to teach English in Japan and was recommended ITTT by a friend. Laura found the course to be great value for money and was happy that she was able to study the course at home in her own time.
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.
Phonology, also known as phonemics, is the study of the particular sound units (phonemes) in languages. It can be compared to phonetics, which is the study of human speech in general, and includes the articulation and perception of sounds. Example Phonology aims to describe the sounds (phonemes) that are distinctive in a language. This can be done by identifying minimal pairs such as 'tin' and 'bin'. In the classroom Phonological areas looked at in language teaching include phonemes, intonation, stress, accent and features of connected speech such as elision, intrusion and catenation.In this unit, I learned about how to break down the uses of modals and how to format them in the proper tense. I found the chart in this unit to be incredibly helpful and I will certainly use it in my future classes. I also studied the passive voice and its different uses as well as common student errors. The section I found most intersting was the \"Phrasal verbs.\" As a native speaker, I use these phrases all the time, but I did not know how to define them or distinguish between them. I now know the difference between intransitive, transitive separable, and transitive inseparable verbs.
