TEFL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Volodymyr
This TEFL review was recorded by Volodymyr from Kiev in Ukraine. He is currently working as an English teacher in the Ukrainian Dance Academy. Having completed his 120-hour online TEFL course with ITTT Volodymyr wants to move to China to teach English and is looking forward to learning more about China as he pursues his English teaching career.
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.
While this unit covered both young and adult learners, I think the section on teaching adult business learners proved to be the most helpful. I feel that the first section on teaching young learners included some repetition from earlier units, although extra details were helpful. Personally, I feel that teaching adults is a little bit more intimidating. While they will generally be more motivated and well-behaved, adults also come with more expectations and therefore added pressure. There is also an added factor of specificity; rather than teaching general English, you need to be able to tailor your lessons to specific goals of the students. The most helpful way of dealing with this is the Needs Analysis. I think this can also help to clear up any confusion that there may be between what the students expect and what the class will actually entail.
