EFL Sample Lesson - Activate Phase Game


This video is a sample EFL lesson in a real-life classroom setting abroad. In the activate phase of the lesson, the teacher starts a class activity with his students. The class is split into two teams and a member of each team is competing against the other team to build a correct sentence about modal verbs. This phase of the lesson is important for the students to actively use the newly learned grammar or vocabulary.

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.

It was interesting to compare the two different lessons. It was infuriating to watch the first lesson but I know that some classes are like this. I have been taught my teachers where the lessons have been effective anf enjoyable but also by teachers who are not interested and are grumpy. I hope that I can teach lessons that have more in common with the second lesson.From this unit i learned that amongst all the techniques and methodologies existent, there is not one to be considered \"the best\". There are certain things to consider before choosing the techinique that is the appropriate one to use in our class. It depends on very different things such as personality (teacher's and students'), culture, and all in all class needs.
