TESOL Videos - English Grammar -- Present Perfect Continuous -- Teaching Ideas 2 -- TEFL Certification
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.
The section presented various teaching methodologies, then focused on detailing a particular one : ESA. ESA borrows practices found in other methodologies, but is overall flexible in form. The aim is mainly to structure the lessons and to avoid monotony using exercises that proved efficient. It is a rather modern teaching method, focused on high student talk time. However, it acknowledges that the role of the teacher is still very important, even if he should be less present in some phases. I knew about some methods like the Silent Way and the CLL, but I hadn't hear much about ESA. Therefore I learnt quite a lot.
