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, we see how the actual hard copy of the teaching materials best complement the teaching style and methods for the benefit of the student.
We have to make sure that the teaching materials are suited to the student's level and that it fits with the learning objectives. It should not be too hard nor too easy, but just perfect for their level and progress objectives.There are many teaching methods each with different approach and advantages as well as disadvantages. The Engage Study Activate (ESA) is a very powerful teaching methodology that allows the students to learn in a more pro-active way by motivating, encouraging and experimenting. I've also learned about giving positive feedbacks, on mistakes and errors, and correction techniques.
