TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - TEFL Video Journal - Linda, Part 4


In the fourth part of her TEFL review video journal of her TEFL course with ITTT Linda talks about her experience of studying unit 4. This grammar based unit is the first that covers the tense system of the English language. The unit focuses on the present tenses and Linda feels that while grammar can be quite boring to study, this unit does a great job in explaining how the tenses can cause problems for learners of English by pointing out issues that do not occur to native speakers of the language.

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 section overviews troubleshooting issues in classrooms. It begins with introductions of the teacher to students and how to build relationships with the class. It also provides ideas on how to address issues of mixed language levels of students by pairing weak and strong students together. Provided in this section are examples of warmers or ice breakers, activities and games, etc.Working through this unit has given me a lot of insight and ideas too future lesson plans, I'm really excited to put into practise what this unit has taught me. And also find it interesting how all this falls into place in a lesson. I'v also realised how important it is to implement what iv learnt in this unit in each class and the impact and importance it has in each lesson students.
