This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
Unit Seven gives us our first glimpse at planning our own lessons to teach our students the three building-blocks of language: vocabulary, grammar, and function. While our daily lessons may not always include the three, our over-all lesson plan will spend an equal amount of time addressing them all, as no language is complete without them.
Vocabulary is the words used (which vary degrees of difficulty based on the similarity to the students' first language and the English words they already know, as well as the spelling, prononciation, and appropriateness), grammar is the proper structure in which these words are placed (it is important to teach the students the grammatical meaning, use, structure, forms and patterns, and difference between the written and spoken forms), while function encompasses how we select the correct vocabulary and grammar for our intended lingual function (to include invitation, refusal, agreement, disagreement, suggestion, and the tone we employ -- formal, informal, tentative, technical, etc).
As always, there were many wonderful examples of how to prepare our ESA lessons to best target each area of lingual focus.
