In this episode, we cover the pronunciation of the word "bunkum". This word is a noun and refers to foolish talk or nonsense. The word came into existence after a representative for Buncombe County, North Carolina, held a speech on an irrelevant subject in the U.S. House of Representatives in 1820. Soon after, the word "bunkum" became known as a synonym for nonsense.
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.
Once again the information contained in this unit was beneficial. What to consider when searching for a position, potential cultural issues, useful questions to ask and tips for writing an application and resume were all very useful. The links to job search websites were very handy and the information on professional organisations and diploma courses were food for thought.Having already completed the TESOL training, some of this chapter was a review for me. However, I did find the information about the Primary Years Program to be insightful as it would bring that program into focus should I encounter it. I liked the two charts regarding language acquisition levels and feel certain I will often refer back to these when creating lesson plans.
