TEFL 120-hour Course - Unit 16


This is Chantelle?s video diary entry after completing unit 16 of her online TEFL course. Unit 16 covers conditionals and reported speech. Both language points can cause difficulty for English language learners and teachers alike. The unit outlines the structure and use of the conditionals and also provides some useful teaching ideas that can be used in your own classes. It also goes into detail about when we use reported speech and the changes that occur when changing direct speech into reported speech. You will also find teaching ideas to help you understand how this language point can be taught in the classroom.

This unit has been very informative in relation to Present tenses. As a native English speaker I actually found the differences in the present tenses quite confusing because we never really stop to think about what exactly we are saying and what present tense it forms. For me this was quite interesting as I can't remember learning this in school or did not take much notice of it.Unit four of teaching Business English considers the use of materials in the classroom commonly used in order to aid learning. We consider both the advantages and disadvantages, as well as various types of authentic and non-authentic materials. We also look at lesson planning and what constitutes a successful lesson plan. Classroom management strategies are also highlighted here.
