TEFL 120-hour Course - Unit 7


This episode of Chantelle’s TEFL course video diary looks at unit 7. Unit 7 deals with techniques for teaching new language whether this is grammar, vocabulary or functions. The unit provides different ways of teaching new language with sample lesson plans and suitable activities. Chantelle provides a good tip for potential students of ITTT’s online courses, which is to print off the course units as you access them and keep them in a folder so that you can easily go back to previous units and refresh your memory on what you have previously studied.

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 unit included 2 videos of lessons teaching modal auxiliary verbs. While these lessons covered the same subject the results couldn't have been more different. It's clear how much the teacher's general attitude can impact the flow and atmosphere of the classroom. I noticed that I have a lot in common with the 2nd video which is very reassuring.This unit is all about the steps and the methods which we use when teaching the learners.These methods involve the use of games, flashcards, the use of real and fake object to facilitate the learning process,drawings,the use of worksheets,songs related to the topic which has to be taught,asking questions while linking the questions to the answers.
