TEFL Videos - zouhaier
Zouhaier just completed his 120-hour online TEFL certification. He enjoyed working closely with his tutor who guided him along the way. He also recommends this course to anyone wanting to teach abroad or enhance their professional portfolio in teaching.
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 chapter covers the use of a course book and supplementary materials. While it would be nice if I had the chance to decide on the book in my cases, I'm simply not in that position. As for supplementary materials, I usually use authentic materials since I can access them immediately versus making my own. I don't have the chance to prepare usually as I'm only given the topic a few hours beforehand and need to bring what I know to the class more than what I've prepared. Luckily I'm usually able to expand on the topics in an interesting fashion to enforce the encourage the students' learning.This unit sets a good example of how a teacher should behave towards students and how to carry out a class. Also, it sets an expectation of the types of students the teacher should expect, especially between young and adult learners and their source of motivation or why they are attending the class. Furthermore, knowing the different levels of a student's language abilities will help the teacher to create a course suitable for them and an understanding of the next level will help the teacher create a course that will help the student have a comfortable start when they reach the next level.
