EFL Sample Lesson - Study Phase - Building Questions

 

This video is a sample EFL lesson in a real-life classroom setting abroad. In the study phase of this lesson the students learn how to build questions with modal verbs. The teacher writes example sentences on the board and the students need to make corresponding questions. It is essential during a study lesson to clearly write information on the board so that the students can absorb the new grammar point or vocabulary effectively.


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.

I find this Unit as most difficult part of this course. I find hard to feel intonation related to stress in a word, sometimes phonetic alphabets and pronunciation of symbols can be tricky. I learned how to use fall-rise and rise-fall intonation and for what they are being used, and how intonation can be taught ( by a gesture, nonsense words, humming or the board).Writing a lesson plan can be a daunting task in that it can be really difficult to create a streamlined, cohesive plan. While I tend more towards flexibility in the classroom rather than rigidity, it's important to have a strong structure underlying even the most flexible lessons. This unit was helpful in showing me how to clearly organize a lesson piece by piece.
