This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
From Unit 11 I have learnt how to teach receptive skills. I have learnt that there are four basic skills in any language. They are: receptive skills (reading and writing) and productive skills (speaking and writing) and that they are all equally important. Having said that, Unit 11 focused on the receptive skills.
Following this, the next area Unit 11 discussed was the reasons for reading and listening which are divided into two (for a purpose and for entertainment) with examples that defined those two categories.
The third aspect I have learnt in this Unit was how we read and listen and that our understanding of the context will depend on the following areas: predictive skills, scanning, skimming, detailed information and deduction.
Furthermore, Unit 11 also showed some problems with listening and reading the many ways of approaching language difficulty by pre-teaching vocabulary and grammar, careful selecting texts, choice of topics, create an interest before starting and the use of appropriate comprehension tasks.
The final part of this Unit was an outline of a typical receptive skills lesson based on Patchwork model with examples of each phase.
