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 this unit the importance if reading, listening, writing and speaking is highlighted and explained in relation to teaching a new language. Different activities are outlined that may enhance these methods.
It is also important that as a teacher one should remember that when choosing a topic it is the interest of the students that should come first rather than own interest.In this lesson, I have learned the different teaching techniques of pronunciation and phonology. Intonation differences and meanings; techniques for indicating and teaching stress; sound joining and linked speech; phonemic symbols; articulation, speech organs, place, and also manner of articulation and finally, teaching techniques for the pronunciation of individual sounds.
