This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
Creating Materials Seven years ago, I arrived at my first piano lesson. Not to learn, but to teach. As I sat waiting for my student to arrive, I looked over all of the beginner books that I had brought with me. I had no idea what I was doing, but figured teaching couldn?t be that hard if I just followed the book. After the lesson had finished, I realized that I had a lot of work ahead of me. I would need to make some of my own materials to fill in the gaps and to help explain many of the ideas that were presented in the book. Whether it is for a piano lesson or an English course, I have learned that creating materials will be necessary for all of my future classes. Created materials for my classes are not only worksheets or modified authentic material, but also can be charts, symbols or pictures which explain an idea. For example, explaining the difference between two similar words. When I first started teaching English this helped me a lot since I needed to understand myself what I was teaching before I could teach it. I have often had to make a whole lesson of original material and now find that those lessons are sometimes the easiest to create extra activities for. If I need to find one or two exercises, many times the materials I find are too long, too short or too difficult.
