TEFL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Jaakko
Jaakko from Finland took the 120-hour online TEFL course with tutor support with videos from ITTT. In this TEFL review video, Jaakko talks about his experience on the course and the things he learned. Jaakko found the course to be well structured and overall very good. Initially he felt that it focused too much on the basics but after completing the course and reflecting on his teaching he realized the importance of studying these basics to the way he approached teaching English. The great thing about ITTTâ€™s online TEFL course is that it caters for both inexperienced and experienced teachers alike. Whether you are completely new to teaching or have already been teaching for some time, you will benefit from taking a course with ITTT.
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.
The unit covers areas of grammar which one often takes for granted as simple. The fact is that learners often experience problems with apparently simple structures like modal auxiliary verbs, relative clauses and phrasal verbs for the simple reason they do not encounter these everyday and hencem they are not as common to learners as they are to native first language users. I found the section showing the modal auxiliaries to be very useful, demonstrating to me how complex these will appear to the learner. Passive and active voice is also covered in the unit and several good suggestions are given for teaching all of these parts of the English grammar.
