TESOL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Pat
Pat from Malaysia is living and working as an accountant in Singapore. In her TEFL review video Pat tells us how she has been considering teaching English as a new career, which is why she decided to take the 120-hour online course with tutor support and videos from ITTT. The course gave Pat an overview of the various skills and techniques used in teaching English and also covered important aspects of English grammar. Pat would like to pursue teaching English in a language centre and hopes to build upon the knowledge and skills she has acquired 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.
Even though I donâ€™t have experience in all the groups that are discussed in this unit I didnâ€™t read anything new. But in case Iâ€™m ever going to teach business English Iâ€™ll go over this unit again. Actually in that case I will probably follow a proper business English teaching course. I did read back some mistakes I made myself, like raising my voice. And actually I think that it doesnâ€™t have to be counterproductive. As long as you donâ€™t speak to one particular student and use it to get a class of 45 wild young learners to get back in their seat. But it should be a last resort.I have mixed feelings about this unit. First and foremost, I despised the first video. The longer I watched, the angrier I became. That nameless teacher was absolutely horrid and rather creepy. I would definitely be uncomfortable being in close quarters with that man looming over me in such a obviously judgmental and intimidating manner. I don't even want to get into what he misguidedly considered \"teaching.\" The second lesson, while much more informative and engaging also had a few minor flaws. In that video, the professor was almost too friendly and seemed to be \"spoon-feeding\" the students. I digress
