TESOL Videos - TEFL 120-hour Course - Unit 13
In Chantelleâ€™s thirteenth video diary entry she talks about unit 13 of her 120-hour online TEFL course. Unit 13 covers pronunciation and phonology. As Chantelle notes there is a lot of information presented in this unit including phonology, stress, articulation and the phonemic alphabet. The unit also looks at how to teach individual sounds and when we should teach pronunciation to our students.
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.
Unit 10 was focused on observing different approaches to teaching. The unit consists of two videos of a teacher conducting class in two different ways. The first video the teacher is ineffective at getting the students to participate or learn the material. While the second video is the opposite. The first video the teacher is impatient, does not explain things well, and very negative the whole time. This makes the class uninterested and the students do not wish to participate. The second class the teacher is positive, courteous, explains each stage better and gets the students to have much more interaction.
