ESA Engage phase activity


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 stresses that there is a wide variety of different teaching approaches and methods, which can be a challenge when trying to select an appropriate one to use with ESL students. Each teaching method has its own pros and cons. The TEFL course that ITTT offers is based on the Engage, Study and Activate approach, or ESA. It is a mix of several different teaching methods.In this unit 15, we started with a discussion about on what assessment is in order to understand the difference among testing, assessment, and evaluation. Assessment can be done in many ways. And I learned that testing is only one of them. Whatever methods or formats are used, assessment must always follow a set of principles which guarantee assessments validity and reliability.
