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.
Unit 2 gives a brief overview of some learning and developmental theories, giving me a base to build upon with my own more in-depth research. This will familiarise me with some theories on the way in which young learners acquire their native language, and will allow me to adopt an approach on how second languages may be learnt. This knowledge, along with having an inspiring and encouraging learning environment, will help me become a more understanding, efficient and productive teacher. This unit helps build on my knowledge of productive and receptive skills and gives me a basic understanding of which skills should be focused on depending on different maturation stages. It also gives guidelines on the general likes and dislikes of young learners in different stages, meaning I can efficiently plan my lessons to create an environment and situations that they will be comfortable in. I really enjoyed reading through this unit. On the section that discusses the different roles of a teacher, they are all so very true! You do feel like an instructor, a facilitator, a psychologist, a counselor and a policeman all at one time; especially when dealing with young students. Even now as a high school teacher, I still feel that I?m wearing many hats.
