TESOL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - TEFL Video Journal - Linda, Part 4
In the fourth part of her TEFL review video journal of her TEFL course with ITTT Linda talks about her experience of studying unit 4. This grammar based unit is the first that covers the tense system of the English language. The unit focuses on the present tenses and Linda feels that while grammar can be quite boring to study, this unit does a great job in explaining how the tenses can cause problems for learners of English by pointing out issues that do not occur to native speakers of the language.
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.
Unit 12 focuses on Writing and Speaking. The unit gives examples of activities that can be done for each. Under speaking, the teacher can focus on either fluency or accuracy. Accuracy, which aims to achieve correct language, is more fit for the Study phase while Fluency, which aims to allow students to be more flexible and creative, is more fit for the Activate phase where Role-play and group activities can be presented to the class. Under writing, students practice their handwriting, punctuation, and spelling. Many activities such as writing stories or summaries can allow students to practice their writing skills.
