TESOL Videos - Tim
Tim currently completed our 120-hour online certification course and enjoyed working with the well-organized units. He also found the videos accompanying the course very useful.
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.
In Unit 10 watching lesson videos was very helpful, to see the difference of teaching styles and attitude of teachers, and how it can effect the students. In the first video lesson the teacher wasn't very aware of his students and they confusion they had, he wasn't able to explain the concepts in a way the students clearly understood. The lesson wasn't very successful because the students were not comfortable asking questions and the teacher didn't have sufficient examples that the students understood. In the second lesson the teacher was a lot more friendly and engaging with the students, creating a comfortable environment for learning and participation. He effectively communicates by speaking slower, with hands gestures, and even acting out different words and actions. This lesson has helped me to think about the kind of teacher that I want to be and how to effectively engage students during lessons.
