TESOL Videos - TEFL 120-hour Course - Unit 9
In her ninth video diary instalment, Chantelle discusses unit 9 of her online TEFL course from ITTT. This unit covers lesson planning and the importance of being well prepared for your lessons. The unit discusses whether there is a need to plan lessons, how a lesson plan should be written and what should be included in a lesson plan. It also looks at ways to plan a sequence of lessons and how important it is for teachers to reflect on past lessons to help improve future classes.
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 19 - When teaching English, it's important to know and understand the different special groups you may be teaching. In this way you're able to approach lesson planning with knowledge of the students you will have as well as knowing the advantages and disadvantages involved with these different groups. The unit gave tips and suggestions on methodology and techniques for teaching beginners which I found to be rather helpful. Business English is growing throughout the world and getting some knowledge on what's involved with these learners helped ease concerns I had with possibly teaching this population.
