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.

 

Unit 11 was centered around the teaching of receptive skills. The two receptive skills are reading and listening. Things that you absorb rather than produce yourself. Both reading and listening skills are equally important in the development of a students command of the language. I also learned that there are two main categories for reading and listening, they are firstly for a purpose and secondly as entertainment.I learned about reading and listening skills in this unit. They are equally important and are based on 'pre-existent' knowledge to gain understanding and context by using skills, such as, predictive skills, scanning, and skimming. A few ways to avoid potential problems with reading and listening are: pre-teach vocabulary and grammar, careful selection of texts, choice of topics, and create interest before you start.
