TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - TEFL Video Journal - Linda, Part 10


In part 10 of her TEFL review video journal, Linda tells us that she has been studying unit 11 of the 120-hour online TEFL course from ITTT. Unit 11 covers receptive skills which involve the ability to listen and read. The unit teaches trainees how to develop strategies for helping students improve their ability to understand English through reading and listening.

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, I felt that the repetitions of present tenses became more complex. It is easy to understand the text and the future tense as a whole. I can see a structure, a pattern between the present, past and futures tenses. My way of studying has also changed before I would read the PDF files first and then watch the videos. Now I watch the videos first and then read the PDF files.In this unit, I have learned that speaking and writing are called productive skills. Speaking activities can be controlled, guided or creative communication. Written text has a number of differences from speaking, such as layout, spelling, handwriting and punctuation. I have also learned the difference between accuracy and fluency activities and which phase they are usually a part of.
