TEFL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Meera
Meera is currently living in France and wants to teach English as a foreign language. In her TEFL review video, Meera tells us how she wasnâ€™t originally aware of TEFL until a friend told her about ITTT. Although initially anxious that the course might take some time to complete, she found the units were easy to follow, informative and enjoyable.
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.
It was eye-opening to learn how many different future tenses there are, and also how the present tenses can also be used when talking about the future. I found these various forms quite complicated even as a native speaker, and therefore realized that learners of a foreign language may really struggle in learning all the different tenses (future as well as other tenses) the English language poses. I think it's good to be made aware of these difficulties for learners, as it can better aid the teacher in preparing relevant tasks and activities in helping students overcome these difficulties.In this section, professional development has been the focus. It discussed the importance of cultural issues, how to find employment, how to build a resume, and examples of cover letters. Also, many different associations and organisations have been discussed. This chapter has been very useful, since I am now looking for a job as an English teacher in Mexico. I have prepared my resume and am currently looking for schools and language institutes. It is always good to keep in mind certain social do's and don'ts. Hopefully this chapter will help me with completing my job search successfully.
