TEFL Videos - TESOL TEFL Video Testimonial - Andreea
This is a TESOL review video by ITTT course graduate Andreea. Andreea was unable to attend onsite classes and found that the online TESOL course was an ideal alternative. ITTT offers both online and in-class courses ensuring that there is a course to suit your schedule.
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;s focus was on the importance of reading and writing in communication. Although some may believe that writing is not as important as speaking, writing has it's place in various contexts and can be the most difficult part of communicating in a foreign language. Spelling and punctuation can be extremely difficult when learning a new alphabet. Penmanship may also be a challenge. As most of us know, if you cannot read the letters then the pathways of communication is broken. This unit helped me to understand the importance of reading and writing when teaching English to foreign students.This unit covered some specifics regarding different types of classes. What and how one teaches can vary depending on the students. For example, the lesson gave recommendations as to how teachers ought to go about teaching a class of young students. This type of learning environment will be very different from a class of middle-aged business people learning English for their careers, as they will be at different levels in the language than children, and will be learning the language for different reasons. The unit finished up with tips on teaching a multilingual class as a monolingual teacher.
