TESOL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Orshi
In this TEFL review, Orshi from Hungary talks about her experience taking ITTTâ€™s 120-hour online TEFL course with tutor support and videos. She appreciated the smoothness of the course and the ease of access to the materials and tutor support. Despite being an experienced language teacher, Orshi found many things in the 20 course modules that helped her to improve her teaching skills. ITTTâ€™s TEFL courses assume participants have zero prior teaching experience, so they are ideal for people who have never taught before. They are also great for current teachers to looking to refresh their skills and pick up some new techniques.
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.
Learning a new language can be easier on some students if they have the opportunity to live in a country where the "target" (new) language they are learning is spoken. Being there gives them the chance to hear it in more realistic, everyday life situations and try to practice what they have learned in class. For all students though, language learning usually involves taking a class during which a teacher presents the new (foreign) language using teaching methods as tools. Throughout the years there have been several different methods created and used, though the one that is currently in use today and uses techniques from all of them, the ESA, established by Jeremy Harmer is the most beneficial to the cause. This method includes Engage stage (getting students interest and attention and allowing for high talk time for the students) - Study stage (focusing on the language and its construction) and an Activate stage (putting the learned material and knowledge into a realistic context). All three phases have their specific activities that contribute to the end goal of each phase and consequently, to the overall learning process.
