This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
This tefl course
has been very useful to me, as it's given me a deeper knowledge of the english language and its structure. It has helped me a great deal with the grammar too. Although my own english (both spoken and written) is fluent, and I rarely feel uncomfortable using the language, it has certainly been a good "eye-opener" to dig deeper into the grammatical part of it. I have gained more confidence, and it's been very useful to learn and understand why things are the way they are, and most of all, how to teach it to others!
As I work
a lot with Swedish and German grammar, it's been a bit of a challenge. Mainly because the terms used to describe the language are different. In the beginning of this course I wasn't all that sure about making it all the way through but as I completed the units one by one it made more and more sense, and now (although only the basics have been covered) I'm really looking forward to practice this knowledge in real life and learning more about it.
I've already been given the ok from my boss to jump in as a substitute teacher for the english classes when needed, and this will of course help me a lot. It will be a good and "soft" start and a great deal of fun for me as well.
I will definitely take my time when planning these occasional english classes, thinking of (and putting into practice) my new skills and knowledge, and I will start incorporating some of the taught techniques in my Swedish teaching as well.
in the units is really good. It explains the structure and techniques in a simple and comprehensible way and is very easy to relate to. I'll definitely come back to the material for ideas and inspiration, for all my classes and hopefully my students (both current and future) will appreciate my approved skills.
I've already taken a small step away from the (sometimes rigid) way of teaching, suggested in my teachers book, and am now spending a good few minutes at the start of every lesson doing engage stage activities. It has helped a lot and the students are both more relaxed and seem to have more fun throughout the whole lesson.
