TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - TEFL Video Journal - Linda, Part 5


Linda lives in China and is taking the 120-hour TEFL course with ITTT. This is the fifth installment of her TEFL review video journal outlining her experiences on the course. In this video Linda tells us about unit 5 of the course which covers aspects of classroom management. The unit has plenty of useful information on how students can be grouped within class and the types of activities that are suitable for different groupings. It also covers ways of dealing with problem behavior and methods for engaging students when they may not be interested in learning. At a quarter of the way through the course Linda is still clearly excited about earning her TEFL certificate.

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 focused on giving a detailed description and understanding of present tense. When I was reviewing the unit, I learned a lot of teaching tips that will get students to understand tricky grammatical sentences. I like how the unit emphasized on drilling and by using student-centered activities in class to help students understand present tenses.I found this very interesting on how I can better introduce lessons and topics on a particular topics such as, actors, musicians, and writers. I have learned the differences on reasons for learning something, such as, enjoyment, information, and instructions. I have also learned how to pick topics that interest the students as a whole and individually.
