TESOL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Linda, Part 10
In part 10 of her TEFL review video journal, Linda tells us that she has been studying unit 11 of the 120-hour online TEFL course from ITTT. Unit 11 covers receptive skills which involve the ability to listen and read. The unit teaches trainees how to develop strategies for helping students improve their ability to understand English through reading and listening.
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 lesson was a good example to see the difference between a good language teacher and a bad language teacher. In addition, it gives an idea of how to react to student difficulties in a classroom of new language learners. It gives the opportunity for the teacher to become a critical thinker about how to plan the lesson and how the attitude of a teacher greatly effects the learning of the students. It would have been better if there was text and comparisons between both videos for teachers to read and compare the errors and mistakes the teachers might have done. The audio of the videos was very difficult to hear.
