TEFL Videos - What's the best way to apply for TEFL jobs?
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.
In this unit, I learned about direct and reported speech as well as different types of conditional sentences. There are five different types of conditionals that all include 'if' in the beginning of the sentence. These vary a little by the way it is written, but once it is broken down by the usages, it is easier to decipher which conditional the sentence is. As for direct and reported speech, it is important to know that reported is the past version of the direct or actual speech. This will take time for non-native speakers to master because it is difficult to change from present to past.This unit explained the variety and choices in course books and teaching materials. I absorbed from this module that the key is to allow flexibility and creativity in your lessons. Course books can offer many benefits that give a strong structure and clear progression for students. However, we don't want students to become bored or disinterested in learning through the rigidness that these books sometimes suffer. Therefore, we must anticipate problems or areas that could be taught in more creative and compelling ways, to maintain a strong and interesting learning environment for students.
