TESOL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Peter
Peter from Hungary recorded this TEFL review video after completing his course with ITTT. Peter has been teaching English to young learners for 12 years. He took the 120-hour course with tutor support and videos and learnt many new things as he was studying. Peter hopes to teach elsewhere in the world now that he has earned his certificate from ITTT.
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 of pronunciation taught me that an effective teacher considers teaching of pronunciation an integral part of teaching the course. Phonology is the study, science analysis and classification of physical properties of sound. Phonology is used to indicate the whole sound system of a particular language. Intonation is variation in volume and pitch in a whole sentence. Stress is more concerned with individual words. The normal pattern of intonation in a statement is the rise/fall intonation. In falling intonation you are indicating that you have finished what you want to say. The second common intonation pattern is the fall/rise pattern. This indicate surprise and often disagreement. This can also indicate speaker hasn't finished what he has to say.
