TEFL 120-hour Course - Unit 16

 

This is Chantelle’s video diary entry after completing unit 16 of her online TEFL course. Unit 16 covers conditionals and reported speech. Both language points can cause difficulty for English language learners and teachers alike. The unit outlines the structure and use of the conditionals and also provides some useful teaching ideas that can be used in your own classes. It also goes into detail about when we use reported speech and the changes that occur when changing direct speech into reported speech. You will also find teaching ideas to help you understand how this language point can be taught in the classroom.


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.

A part of English Grammar deals with the conditionals and reported speech. the teacher has to know all form of IF clause and also all changes relating to the tenses, pronouns and some expressions like tomorrow in reported speech.This unit describes various subtle aspects to classroom management, including the use of eye-contact, seating and grouping arrangements, gestures and more. This unit did not have anything to teach me that I did not already know.This unit the videos showed me how to work with students using the ESA lesson plan, and what not to do like the teacher in video 1. It also showed you how to work with students and get their attention and excited for the lesson.
