TEFL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Sonia
Sonia recorded this TEFL review after completing the 120-hour online TEFL course from ITTT. The course has given her more confidence as a teacher as well as the chance to develop her skills in the profession. As a new graduate, Sonia is now looking to teach in China where she can put her newly learned teaching abilities to use and start her career as an English teacher abroad.
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.
From this unit, I've learned the attitude of the teacher and a good lesson plan really can affect the class effectiveness. In the first video, the teacher looks very unhappy, speak unclearly and cannot explain the lesson point explicitly. All of the students seem very confused and unwilling to be involved in. But in the second video, as a contrast, the teacher is very happy and establish a rapport with the students. Meanwhile, he speaks clearly and happily to make the students engaging. And the teacher uses a clear lesson plan to make students engage, study and activate in the whole class.This unit showcases two teaching techniques and analyzes how effective the methods are in engaging students. The first video is an example of what not to do. The students were not engaged and were often reluctant to partake in the classroom activities. The teacher also never smiled and was not encouraging. On the other hand, the second video is a prime example of positive reinforcements and effectively creates a welcoming teaching style, which encourages all students to participate in the activities. Overall this unit gave great insight into what we should expect out of a typical classroom.
