TESOL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - TEFL Video Journal - Linda, Part 9
Linda updates us on her progress with ITTT's 120-hour online TEFL course. In the ninth part of her TEFL review video journal, Linda tells us about her progress with units 9 and 10 on the course. As Linda points out these two units are closely related with unit 9 covering lesson planning while unit 10 looks at two very different lessons, one good and one bad, taught by the same teacher.
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.
Modals are really important and from my experience students often asked the variations between them especially which are more polite or the varying degree of certainty. Understanding these differences if therefore critical in helping to guide students. Passive voice is also important because it helps to explain when it is not known, not important, or we don't want to say, exactly who performs the action. Relative clauses are also fun to use as they help to explain who did something. Phrasal verbs are a bit tough to explain but very key for idioms usually, which I believe students like to to learn from time to time.
