In this TEFL review video, 120-hour online TEFL course graduate Corrin shows us round parts of Florence, Italy where she works as an English teacher and gives us a glimpse inside one of her classes. Corrin took the course with tutor support which she found really helpful and would recommend the course for those looking to teach English as a foreign language.
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 provided me with great examples and inspired a few ideas for how to motivate the class to pay attention and feel like they should be learning English. I particularly liked the examples which use famous celebrities such as Elvis or Tom Cruise which are a great idea to motivate students for their own personal benefit of enjoying English media.It is nice to see an actual video of a lesson - it is much easier to point out right things to do and things to try to avoid when you are sitting there listening to someone else teach a lesson and can see how it impacts the success of the lesson. It is crazy to think something as little as a smile can change the way your students engage in the lesson.
