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 unit I have learned about the methodologies that influenced and paved the way for the ESA (Engage, Study, Activate) method used in the ITTT TEFL course. I have been given various techniques and activities to utilize in the classroom. I should find ways to involve students in the learning of their target language as much as possible by using thought-provoking exercises.
It will take time and experience to find a good balance when correcting student errors. I should not be in a rush to correct errors immediately unless said error will impede the students' understanding of their target language. If a student makes an error, I should first give them the opportunity to work it out on their own or with the help of their classmates.
Sensitivity to the feelings of the students is key. Anxiety and stress levels within the classroom should be kept as low as possible. If a student makes an error and can not correct it, I should move on with the lesson or activity so as not to humiliate the student. I should be on the lookout for ways to compliment the efforts of the students and to provide positive feedback on their schoolwork.
