TESOL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Amy
In this TESOL review video, graduate Amy from South Africa tells us how she took two online courses with ITTT; the 120-hour course with videos and tutor support and the course in teaching English to young learners. After completing the courses Amy accepted an English teaching position in Korea.
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.
Students who are learning a new language need to be exposed to it as much as possible. Students must also understand the meaning, understand how it is constructed, and pronounce and produce it. When teaching new vocabulary there are several factors which can impact the ease or challenge of the new words, such as the closeness of the term to a native language. As a teacher one should consider things like how appropriate the word is, how frequently it is used, and its teach-ability. For students the focus should be on things like meaning, use, and grammar. The same criterion holds for grammar structures and function.
