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.
This unit introduced the concepts of intonation and stress in the delivery of sentences and the pronunciation of words, and suggested some techniques for teaching these. It then went into some detail of the actual process of creating sounds and described the manner and place of articulation. The use of the International Phonemic Alphabet (IPA) was then reviewed. For me, the IPA is a particularly important concept as it allows students to recognise and reproduce the sounds that words are made from rather than relying on traditional spelling which has so many variations that would be hard to explain in a logical way.
