TEFL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Pat
Pat from Malaysia is living and working as an accountant in Singapore. In her TEFL review video Pat tells us how she has been considering teaching English as a new career, which is why she decided to take the 120-hour online course with tutor support and videos from ITTT. The course gave Pat an overview of the various skills and techniques used in teaching English and also covered important aspects of English grammar. Pat would like to pursue teaching English in a language centre and hopes to build upon the knowledge and skills she has acquired with ITTT in the future.
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.
This unit discusses different types of groups that may be taught English. Beginner English learners come in several forms, and each may have different needs. It is important when teaching beginners to incorporate many visual aids, and resist the temptation to use the learners' mother tongue while teaching. Another significant group of learners is business people learning for specific purposes. This group can vary widely in age, and may lack the energy or regular schedule to progress at the desired pace in the class. Therefore, it is likely the teacher will need to adapt to the situation.Course book are a very emotive issue for many teachers. Some teachers swear by them, while other teachers despise them. Almost every published course book has its fans and detractors. In an ideal world schools would have all the book and materials that you could need. The reality, however, is somewhat different. This means that often teachers have to create their own materials to either supplement the course book or replace sections that are not suitable for the class. For many students, compared to the course book, materials created by the teacher are more interesting and more relevant.
