C.H. - New Zealand said:
Before beginning this course I had taught ESOL full-time in japan for approximately one year. In japan, you are not required to have a TEFL, TESOL or CELTA qualification. Having a graduate degree is the only qualification that is required. Therefore, I was able to work without having done the training. I taught mostly kids classes and conversational adults classes. I learnt a lot of games for teaching children, (using flashcards, puppets, toys etc.) and conversation games and techniques for encouraging adults to speak english. However, my knowledge of grammar was very minimal. Being a native english speaker, I usually can determine if the grammar is incorrect, but I could not always explain the reasons for why it is incorrect. The most valuable thing I have gained from this course is the comprehensive explanations of grammar. It is valuable to know what problems the students are likely to face, and how to help them to understand how to use grammar. In Japan, I taught small classes with a maximum number being about eight students, and the classes were usually only one hour in length. Structured planning wasn't always strictly necessary because conversation was the main target of the lesson, and it was easy to have discussions with such small groups. Here in New Zealand, I have twenty students in my class. They study for four hours a day, five days a week. There is a much higher need for studying grammar and new vocabulary. There needs to be variety of reading, writing, speaking and listening. All of these topics were covered in the course so that has filled a gap in my knowledge of teaching ESOL. This course has been invaluable to me and I have put what I have learnt into practice as I have gone along. I have greatly gained from learning how to structure a lesson thoroughly. With such long hours with the same students, I need to have a complete working plan for the week. Learning about the different phases of a lesson (Engage, Study, Activate) and receiving many teaching ideas for these phases has been extremely useful for my current job.
