TEFL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Linda, Part 3
In this TEFL review video Linda discusses her work on unit 3 of ITTTâ€™s 120-hour TEFL course. This unit focuses on the theories and methodologies of English language teaching. The unit is longer than the previous two units but contains a lot of information about teaching methods, lesson planning, correction techniques and games and activities for the classroom.
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.
In this unit, I learned about different tenses and their applications, as well as how to explain them to English learners. There are 12 total tenses, and their uses are combinations of past, present, perfect and the participle. It was explained that it will be difficult for new learners to understand the various uses, as there are many rules that exempt certain words from others, by changing their meaning, or some words that change when used in the third person singular, and can only be memorized. Reading this unit, made me aware of rules, that as the author said, native speakers don't even realize exist. I look forward to trying the games and developing my own methods of explanation.
