Find out the difference between authentic and non-authentic materials in this video.
Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching. This convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.
This unit covered what to expect and methods for teaching special groups. These special groups included beginners, business English classes, and multilingual classes. Teaching beginners requires special methodology and techniques. It is important to be aware of your students' needs. The teacher should arrange the classroom accordingly and be as visual as possible.This unit was nice and easy, and got to the main idea write away. Although the unit didn't have an example straight and arrow lesson, I was able to remember the components of the patchwork lesson. Looking back at my notes from the patchwork lesson, I was able to find some examples of the engage, study, and activate that helped me answer the questions for the unit.
