TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Paul


Paul from Australia is currently living in Manila in the Philippines. Paul took the 120-hour online TESOL course without tutor from ITTT. In this TESOL review video, Paul tells us that he found the course to be challenging and rewarding and had a great time completing but feels it would have been better to take the course with tutor support. Since completing the course Paul has been able to observe ESL lessons at the local international school and is looking forward to starting his new career as a TESOL teacher.

I thought seeing the two different ways the same lesson was presented was helpful for me. I saw the importance of knowing the students names so they feel like they are being respected and acknowledged. In the first lesson, I noticed how often the instructor kept repeating the same phrasing when students obviously did not understand, and the instructor kept telling students how easy the material was even though he was not explaining it well. In the second lesson, the instructor's positive attitude really helped the students become more engaged in the lesson.
