TESOL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Floyd
This TESOL review video was recorded by ITTT graduate Floyd. Floyd is from the USA but is currently living and working as an English teacher in Japan. Floyd took the 120-hour online course with tutor support as well as the teaching business English course and intends to take the diploma course with ITTT in the future.
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.
I find teaching phonology and pronunciation quite difficult as the students whose mother language is not English can't pronate the English sounds like native speakers which may result in misundersanding in future. Thus, when teaching the vocabulary it's important to pay more attention to how new words are pronounced correctly. Also the teacher should explain the intonation to help students achieve better understanding of what people are saying to them. Focusing on stress is also important for getting the write message. I think teaching pronunciation is more about practice and training than providing the theory.
