TEFL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Brian
Brian took the 120-hour online TEFL course from ITTT so he could teach English abroad. In this TEFL review he tells us that as well as the many topics covered by the course he appreciated the flexibility that allowed him to complete it at his own pace.
This is what one of our TEFL graduates feels he has gained from the course, or a part of it, and how he plans to put into action what he has learned.
This unit was somewhat helpful. I like the idea of lesson plans, for a new teacher such as myself they help give me confidence. I almost never stick directly to the plan and sometimes I don't even look at it after I've written it. Just the fact that I've written it and that it's there if I need it gives me reassurance and poise to do a lesson confidently. I found it interesting that the unit strictly underlined the importance of knowing how long a task takes. I generally guess but don't write it down. I usually overplan so I have things to do if we get through things too fast. Although I had a tendency to overestimate what we can get done in a lesson. I think it comes with experience, but perhaps more focus on the estimated duration would serve my classes well.
