TESOL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Chethan
Like many of ITTT's students Chethan had been teaching for some time before taking his online course. In this TESOL review video, Chethan describes how through taking the course he was able to learn new teaching techniques and adapt his approach to improve his English 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.
This unit covered teaching productive skills. The productive skills are writing and speaking. In the unit, the differences between accuracy and fluency are mentioned. Prior to the lesson, I had not really thought very much about the differences between the two. One of the main differences between them is that accuracy focuses on the content that a student is producing, where as fluency is more concerned with the students freely producing work. Looking at it this way, it seems that speaking activities can be useful for encouraging fluency and some accuracy. On the other hand, writing can be used to promote accuracy.
