TESOL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Wieslaw
Wieslaw form Poland took the 120-hour online TESOL course with tutor support and videos. In his TESOL review video, Wieslaw tells us he is currently teaching kindergarten students in Nanjing, China. He found the material in the course clear and well put together covering several different topics including classroom management, teaching different age groups, grammar and lesson planning.
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 focused on productive skills. There are two productive skills: speaking and writing. When the lesson is about speaking teaching accuracy and fluency is equally important, but they require different kids of activities. When teaching accuracy the lesson needs to be more controlled, by the teacher, with activities like controlled role-play, drilling or prompting and these are used more often during the Study phase of the lesson. Fluency activities are more concentrated with letting the student experiment with the language and these activities like free role-play are used more often during the Activate phase of the lesson. While teaching writing skills it's good to remember that most of the students come from countries that might have completely different alphabet and grammar rules. So it's important to think ahead and plan the lesson well.
