This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
Prior to taking this course, my knowledge of english
grammar was very limited and primarily gleaned tangentially from taking courses in other languages such as french
and Mandarin. I have found this course incredibly useful for its comprehensive overview of basic english
grammar as well as its introduction to strategies and techniques that can be used for teaching EFL in a variety of contexts. I plan put into action what I have learned in several ways.
One of the reasons I took this course is that I would like to eventually work as a consultant for the design and development of online games that are capable of simultaneously teaching users a foreign language, while also introducing them to another nation’s history and culture. I have a general knowledge of the technological aspects of such a project and because I have a degree in anthropology I have a good idea about how to teach history and culture. However, I was clueless as to how to address the challenges of teaching and learning english
as a foreign language. This course has improved my own knowledge of english
grammar. Additionally, I have gained a much better grounding in what EFL students need to learn at different levels as well as how to teach (relevant examples, appropriate drills and activities, the steps involved etc…). Particularly useful were the contextual examples along the way that discuss what problems are most likely to be encountered among students from a particular ethnic or linguistic background. This has made me realize that an effective EFL game needs to be designed with the needs of specific groups of learners in mind. This will require background research watching students learn in context and consultation with experienced teachers.
