Theories, Methods & Techniques of Teaching - Nature vs. Nurture
This is the first video of our series on "Theories, Methods & Techniques of Teaching". In this episode, we introduce the topic "Nature vs. Nurture", the starting point of every teaching methodology out there.
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 is much more complex then almost any of the previous lessons we have learned as it is much more detailed and not basic even for native English speakers like myself. The first part of the unit dealing with stress on words and volume/pitch is not too difficult however when we begin to get in to phonetics is becomes much harder and takes longer to understand.I really enjoyed this unit. It took me back to my school days having to tediously study all of these very important parts of sentence structure. I believe it has help me tremendously to re understand what it is to learn the english language as it is now second nature to me. The test was really challenging and has helped me gain a concrete understanding of this unit.
