TEFL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Iban
Iban is currently living and teaching at an English academy in Pamplona, Spain. In his TEFL review, Iban tells us that he took the 120-hour TEFL course with ITTT. Iban appreciated the support he received from his online tutor throughout the course and the fact that he was able to put what he was learning into practice with his teaching job. Now Iban has finished the 120-hour course he is looking forward to taking the business English course as well the OTP course offered by ITTT. ITTTâ€™s OTP (Observed Teaching Practice) course is a series of modules that allows you to gain practical teaching certification to supplement an online teaching certificate without having to attend a training center. It is an excellent way to boost your CV when applying for teaching jobs.
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.
This unit involved two videos, each demonstrating a classroom scenario. The first video showed incompetent teaching methods, such as few gestures, no smiling, less active participation and fast paced talking. The second video was the better demonstration of ESA teaching, as it showed an active lesson with student's talking and a warmer atmosphere all round. From this lesson I learned a number of things, including a first hand idea of a real classroom, and how to effectively encourage student participation by engaging them with understandable concepts before teaching the more difficult things.
