TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Volodymyr
This TEFL review was recorded by Volodymyr from Kiev in Ukraine. He is currently working as an English teacher in the Ukrainian Dance Academy. Having completed his 120-hour online TEFL course with ITTT Volodymyr wants to move to China to teach English and is looking forward to learning more about China as he pursues his English teaching career.
Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching. This convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.
This unit covers the difficulties that learners can face when approaching English pronunciation. It provides information about intonation and stress, and how those two things can drastically change the aim of a conversation or meaning of a sentence. It also provides detail regarding the anatomical and mechanical formation of sounds (e.g. plosives and alveolar). I've often wondered how one should standardize pronunciation in the classroom, considering how different words with similar spelling can end up being pronounced, so the universal pronunciation section was incredibly helpful.
