Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching. This convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.
This lesson focuses on the aspects of teaching a new language and how to approach each of them. It explains how to introduce new grammar, vocabulary and language functions more effectively in the classroom. It provides examples of suitable activities and typical ESA lessons for each topic, and which criteria to use in teaching each of these elements.I found this unit very useful and full of great ideas and suggestions for teaching practice. Speaking, listening, reading and writing are four aspects of language that should be presented in the same ratio. For example, when it comes to listening, songs, chants and rhymes is the best option. Reading and writing are represented in short-story writing.
