This is what one of our TEFL graduates feels he has gained from the course, or a part of it, and how he plans to put into action what he has learned.
I have learned the do's and don'ts of creating a syllabus and what to expect from the various tests that are administered to students and what they're testing for, and how they can benefit you as a teacher and the students themselves. Also, the need for regular progress tests to see how the students are doing in their language acquisition can be beneficial to the teacher and their methodology as well as the student in understanding where they are excelling and where they are struggling. Unit 3 talked about different types of testing and examinations to classify/assess students, limiting factors for the sort of course you want to build, and syllabus types. I learned a lot from this unit, especially types of tests (diagnostic, aptitude, etc.) and syllabi (functional-notional, situational, etc.) I was made more aware of level testing and needs analysis to structure classes, and how often tests should be included in a syllabus. Developing a course clearly takes many things into consideration.
