The ESA Methodology of Teaching - Types of ESA Lessons


This video is part of our ESA Methodology series. The ESA methodology consists of three stages. In this series, we look at the individual purposes of each stage and typical activities for each stage. In the fourth episode, we give a detailed overview of all types of ESA lessons, including the straight arrow, boomerang ESA and patchwork ESA.

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.

In Unit 1, I have learned about the 9 roles of a TEFL teacher. They include: manager, organizer, assessor, prompter, participant, tutor, facilitator, observer and model. Age is an important factor in student learning abilities. There are adult learner but there are 3 categories of young learners: post-puberty (13 or older), pre-puberty (8-12), and young (7 or less).Unfortunately I have never had the possibility to work with all the mentioned cathegories of learners. That's why I 've found out much interesting and useful to think about. To my mind this review of different types of learners and some tips for work with particular clients is very essential for every teacher. I hope I could use these tips in my teaching activities.
