TEFL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Tori
Tori is an American living in Japan. Tori took the 120-hour online TEFL course and in this TEFL review, she discusses her experience of teaching English in Japan and studying with ITTT. Teaching English in Japan has challenged Tori to think about the English language in ways she may not have previously considered and by taking the course with ITTT she has been able to better understand ways of explaining things to students in a clear and simple manner.
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.
After taking these courses and learning more and more about teaching methodology, I'm wanting to incorporate more and more of what I'm learning into my own classroom... but I am unable to do so. I have a lot of kids who, whenever I give directions with gestures and easy words, just respond with "WHAT?" They don't even look at me or try to listen. I want them to understand the following quote: "However if students never get past the stage of having to understand each and every word, they never really feel comfortable with receptive skills. Learning to understand texts without knowing every word is a skill that we should also encourage in our students.#;;;;;;;;;; ;;;;;;;;;; This unit gave me information that is going to be useful from now on for teaching Business English. This unit showed me the best way to prepare a CV when applying for a job outside a native country. Also it is presenting the most important points to be aware when writing a CV, In fact this Unit provides lessons with a list of tests that will help to improve and make stronger the structure of a CV as well as a list of good companies where we as teachers may want to apply for a job position with a good work environment.
