This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
I learned many new things from taking this course. As a former elementary school teacher, by grammar skills were rusty, and this course most certainly brought them back to a level of competence that I can be proud of. In fact, I thing they went beyond what I learned in my own education in high school and college. I have always been considered a very good writer, but I think my writing skills will be better still because of what I have gained through this course.
Many things presented in this course were presented in a similar fashion to the way I was prepared to teach elementary students. For example, lesson plans, the use of textbooks versus making your own materials and using other forms of media in the classroom. I found this immensely satisfying. I also appreciated this course's approach to motivation and engendering self confidence and self esteem in the classroom. Respect, interest in one's students personal interests and situations, encouragement, all serve to build a positive experience when learning, and this course taught these things as part of its curriculum.
As I move into a position as a teacher of english
, I plan to take all this with me. I look forward to my next step in refining my skills as a Business english
teacher, for it is there that I feel I can make a real difference for my students. I have had many experiences in the business world, and I believe that those, in combination with my background gained from this course, will make me an asset to any company.
