This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
Integrated SkillsIt is common and often necessary for english teachers to distinguish the macro skills (reading, listening, speaking, and writing) and numerous related micro-skills, then design courses or lessons revolving around one separate skill depending on the student’s weakness, objective, specific need, or something entirely different such as the availability of time and resources, and even their personal inclination or forte in teaching. Other reasons for teaching language skills separately include avoiding information overload in the classroom, maintaining organization of materials and activities, and focusing on quality rather than quantity by providing students more time to internalize each separate lesson more effectively. However, in real-life communication, our receptive skills (reading and listening) are naturally integrated with our productive skills (speaking and writing). For instance, in a conversation, we listen to something being spoken and then we respond by using speech. When making a report, we read written information, then we convey our thoughts in writing. In the classroom, even when focusing on one macro skill, at least one other distinct skill is inevitably integrated.
