TESOL Videos - TEFL 120-hour Course - Unit 7
This episode of Chantelleâ€™s TEFL course video diary looks at unit 7. Unit 7 deals with techniques for teaching new language whether this is grammar, vocabulary or functions. The unit provides different ways of teaching new language with sample lesson plans and suitable activities. Chantelle provides a good tip for potential students of ITTTâ€™s online courses, which is to print off the course units as you access them and keep them in a folder so that you can easily go back to previous units and refresh your memory on what you have previously studied.
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 6 talks about the 4 forms of the past tense. It is a very tricky unit because it reviews rapidly the past tense by making the reader recall the usage and forms of the present tense and at times simply says: remember the use in present tense. Though it is a good way to remember and study and it might be very helpful for the structure, when it comes to the usage, I believe there could have been a bit more examples or explanations on how to teach it to different level students. Yet, what I learned from this chapter is that the past perfect continuous is not a common used tense, and usages of each tense.
