TEFL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Thom
Thom from the Netherlands recorded this TEFL review video after completing the ITTT 120-hour online TEFL course. Thom took the course with tutor support and videos. He notes that the course materials are well written and easy to understand. He also found the tutor support to be very useful. Thom enjoyed the experience and found that the job support he received after graduating really helpful.
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.
I was pleased to see that the information from the 120 hour course was more detailed for business students like when using authentic material. I also liked that there was advice in this unit such as needing to be prepared to create materials in case the workplace does not provide many/any. Surfing online for class material was amusing to read because I have had to learn things like ignoring sites that want you to sign up and pay in my last few years of teaching. Overall, I did not learn anything new this unit, but it was nice to see this information in the context of teaching professionals.This unit twas a good insight into a teacher's approach to presenting students with reading and listening materials to make use of, and improve, their receptive skills. This unit again highlights how important it is to think of all elements when planning a lesson. Not only can you give the students materials to read or listen to, but you also have to consider what is best for the students in terms of the level, and content of the material. A teacher must also choose material which gives them the opportunity to plan fun and engaging activities for the lesson, which are relevant to the topic.
