This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
Not only have I gained the knowledge of how to teach, but I have gained the confidence that I need, to be able to stand in front of a classroom. I had no idea how to put together a lesson plan before staring this course. I now know how to plan a lesson from beginning to end. It is very important to build a rapport with my students and to be able to engage them at the beginning of each lesson. I now feel confident that I will be able to explore many different ways of doing this. I also know that things are not always going to go exactly as planned. But when creating a lesson plan, I can anticipate both the problems for me as the teacher, as well as the problems for my student. Hopefully, in anticipating these before the lesson, it can help to cut down on the problems during the actual class.
The reading materials in this course have provided many options for activities as well as great websites with even more resources. I plan to utilize many of these throughout my teachings.
I also found the lesson on teaching Business english
very useful. I may have an interest in teaching this in the future, but would have not known where to begin approaching the subject without having taken this course. I’ve learned that it is important to not only research the company, who they are, what they do, who their competitors are, how to get there and who the main contact is, but it is also important to know about the individuals I would be teaching. Doing a questionnaire with them about what their needs are can help me focus the class on what specifically they are wanting to learn (EX: taking phone calls, conducting interviews, entertaining clients, negotiations, etc).
This course has taught me everything I currently know about teaching and I plan to draw from these materials when stepping into the classroom, especially for the first days and weeks.
