TESOL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Kim
Kim is living in America and in this TEFL review she discusses the 120-hour online TEFL course with tutor support and videos from ITTT. Kim took the course without any prior teaching experience and was initially worried that she would find the course very difficult to complete. In the end she found the experience to be very enjoyable with plenty of information provided in the online course materials. Kim also found the tutor support and feedback to be helpful and would definitely recommend the course to those planning on teaching English.
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 was on teaching receptive skills, namely reading and listening. I learned that it would be valuable to teach students to listen or read content even if they cannot understand every single word. There will need to be choices made by the instructor on which vocabulary are important to teach beforehand that will aid in understanding the text as a whole. I also learned that there are different motivations for reading and listening, and if a teacher successfully chooses material that caters to many different interests he/she may spark growth in reading and listening skills for all types of personalities.
