This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
To put what I have learned in this course into a single phrase, I would say, "flexible dynamics." I have been a high school english teacher and an ESL teacher for years, but this course has opened up to me new inspiration and a new way of thinking in making my classes more interesting, interactive and dynamic. I can tend to be a structured traditionalist in style. There is nothing wrong with structure, and you do have to cover the required material
, but these two issues should not take precedence over making class enjoyable.
I have already started integrating more group and pair work
into my classes, and I immediately see the benefits of this method. I appreciate the notion of "warmers" or "engage stage" in the lesson plan. I already do this somewhat, but not consistently. It takes more work to prepare these extra activities, but I would like to create a "tool belt" of such activities that I can draw from.
I thought the course was well laid out, clearly presented, and an excellent summary of the basic skills needed to teach english as a foreign language. I found it helpful and encouraging.
