TEFL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - TEFL Video Journal - Week 3
In this TEFL review video another TEFL/TESOL student shares some of her experiences as a student with ITTT completing the four week in-class course. Gaining a TEFL certification from ITTT is the first step towards an exciting and rewarding experience teaching English overseas. During your training course you will have the opportunity to meet and study with people from all over the world. Our trainees come from a variety of backgrounds and age groups.
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 provides two video demonstrations of teaching a class. Compare the two lessons, students in the first video seem to be more confused and less confident about their answers since the teacherâ€™s instructions are not clear. The attitude of the teacher in the first class has negative influences on the students and he doesnâ€™t devote to create a friendly and motivating learning environment. In contrast, the teacher in the second class is better at using gestures and helping students. He learns the studentsâ€™ names and communicates with the students in a relative friendly way.Lesson planning is one of the most important tools for a teacher and will usually make or break a lesson. It is important to adapt to the situation and be as flexible as possible and lesson planning well can allow you to do this. Also, following ESA will allow teachers to effectively plan step by step a lesson. Though it might change due to the situation, having a concrete plan is of the utmost importance to the success of a lesson. Especially for first year teachers, it is important to study lesson planning to have a smooth year where they can learn a lot from their own lessons and students.
