This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
In this lesson I learned that depending on if you are teaching vocabulary or language structure will effect how a lesson is taught. A vocabulary lesson is best taught with a straight arrow ESA structure, the students will need to understand the meaning, use, how and when to use the word, the words effect on other words, the spelling and of course the pronunciation. The word may be easier or more difficult for the students to learn, 2 reasons for this are;its similarity to words in their native language and its similarity to words that they have already learned in English.
When teaching language structure, a patchwork or boomerang ESA structure is better. It is important for students to understand what the language they are learning means, how it is used correctly, what the grammatical structure is (where the word is located in a phrase), as well as how the word is spelled and pronounced.
