TEFL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Leslie
Leslie is a Canadian English teacher at a junior high school in the Japanese countryside. In this TESOL review, Leslie tells us she is looking to open her own English language day care centre at her home and with this in mind she took the 120-hour certificate course with ITTT as well as the 50-hour young learners course to bring her qualifications up to date. Hopefully for Leslie this will be the first step on a rewarding career as the owner of a successful English language school in Japan.
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.
I like that the last lesson of the TEFL course reinforced how important it is to establish a relationship with students and build a rapport at the beginning of the year. The text said don't even open a book for the first couple lessons, which is so important in my teaching philosophy. Students are going to be reluctant to learn and put forth the effort if they don't feel that the teacher cares about their success. It's important to have extra materials ready and to teach to the majority of the class, adjusting the lesson or creating more opportunities for students that are above or below average.
