Here Below you can check out the feedback (for one of our units) of one of the 16.000 students that last year took an online course with ITTT!
This unit covers three main types of EFL lesson environments: beginner/young learner classes, business English classes, and one-on-one lessons. For the past two years, I've been teaching in the first situation, to young learners (aged 4-16) who are beginners or low-level English learners. In the past few months, however, I've started teaching adult learners, both in one-on-one lessons and in classrooms. On those fronts, I found this unit to be really helpful.
First, I learned from the Needs Analysis example in the business English section. I always have "trial lessons" with my new students, and during those trial lessons I ask questions about what the students want to focus on. As the text predicts, many students often say they want to focus on conversation. So, I'd been wondering how to more clearly evaluate the students' NEEDS in addition to their wants. I'd like to design my own Needs Analysis test for future students.
In addition, I got some good ideas for teaching both the business learners and the travellers. When I meet with my new business-English student, I'd like to ask him about any English materials he has through his new company. If we can work through real materials together, it'll help focus our lessons and give us both adequate context for framing future lessons. When I meet my students who travel and use English, I can use some of the "Suitable 1-1 activities." I'd like to do Buzzfeed quizzes with my students, or go through song lyrics to popular songs they like, or take a look at Michael Swan's book on practical English usage.
As ever, I'm thankful for the additional ideas from this unit. I'm looking forward to enhancing my current lessons to these different kinds of special groups!
