TEFL 120-hour Course - Unit 9


In her ninth video diary instalment, Chantelle discusses unit 9 of her online TEFL course from ITTT. This unit covers lesson planning and the importance of being well prepared for your lessons. The unit discusses whether there is a need to plan lessons, how a lesson plan should be written and what should be included in a lesson plan. It also looks at ways to plan a sequence of lessons and how important it is for teachers to reflect on past lessons to help improve future classes.

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 was fun as it was informative. I would like to comment, however, that most of my learners dislike the IPA symbols for being simply unintelligible for them (and they actually refuse to learn them). In addition, I have never taught intonation because it has never appeared in any syllabus I have used. I think it would be very interesting to use them in the future, though.This lesson was difficult. I really hope I did well on it. Also, I believe I want to travel to the USA and learn American English, instead of the UK English pronunciation. I like the American style a lot better. It is easier to speak, and the words are less funnier than the UK ones. I typically laugh a lot when I try to speak with a British accent because it doesn't sound normal.
