This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
This took me back to my Linguistics 200 class at UBC in Vancouver. This is definitely something I haven't looked at and thought of in a while. But it was good to go through it all again. And more - the depth of knowledge that is presented in these units are incredible but also so useful and I find that once I start, I want to delve deeper into the subject. Intonation was definitely something that I had not really looked into before. Looking at the rise and fall or voice was so intriguing and looking at the expected responses from listeners, and the expectation of no response just from intonation was something new. I've taught a bit about stress before, but really only enough to explain sonnets and iambic pentameter, so I was kind of surprised by the idea that the main meaning of a sentence can be pulled from the stressed syllables. I was also intrigued by the contrastive practice, of pronouncing the sound/word incorrectly to be aware of the sound. Also, sound joining was something I hadn't been exposed to before. And it's obvious that the phonetic alphabet is something I definitely have to become more familiar with.
