TESOL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Matt
In the TEFL review, Matt describes how he was living and working as an English teacher in Japan when his employer asked him to get TEFL certified which he did through an online TEFL course with ITTT. Policy changes around the world mean that many countries now require their English teachers to have at least a 120-hour TEFL/TESOL certificate. ITTT's online courses are a great way to gain certification without having to take time off work.
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.
Productive skills are speaking and writing, both of which are equally important. To help the students, a teacher must speak proper English and be a good model. The speaking activities in class must be a good mix of controlled, guided and creativity-based and should encompass a variety including role plays, debates, discussions, communication games and dialogues. Writing is probably a more difficult skill because it requires a greater degree of accuracy in terms of punctuation, spelling, layout and even in grammar. Thus a good teacher must not neglect writing but motivate the students to do their best and thrive.
