This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
During my teaching time, I have needed to teach grammar, but I wasn't always aware of the clearest way to teach it. Grammar can be very confusing, especially with all of its irregularities, and the system of teaching the parts strung together with plus signs gave me a way to teach it to students with a clear pattern for them to follow. I also have a better idea of how to organize my board to emphasize different points of a lesson. Although grammar was not a particular weakness for me personally, having to review it formally within the course has made me more aware of the progression in the course books I must use at my company school. Often, it will just teach a dialogue for students to unscramble/match/etc. in a workbook. By working on this course, I'm able to glean the structures from the dialogues and teach those separately, using the course book more for speaking practice and examples than the lesson's focus.
Reading comprehension can be challenging for native speakers and especially so for non-native speakers. I've learned a lot more about guided discussion, games, and how people gather information through units 11 and 12. Often reading classes can feel like an extended quiz for students so learning different ways to check for knowledge has made my classes more interesting and students more motivated. As well, learning more effective ways to lesson plan and organize information for students has helped them feel less frustrated about not understanding what they're reading. Taking the ideas and re-writing them into a new format or having students "jigsaw" the idea has helped students who lack strong receptive skills.
