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 13 covered teaching pronunciation and phonology. This unit proved to be one of the most confusing to date, with its coverage of the mouth and the phonetic symbols. The point of the chart and break down of the phonetic symbols is meant to make learning pronunciation easier for non native speakers. As a native speaker I found the chart confusing and unnecessary, my main concern being that adding this along with the regular alphabet when teaching would just be adding extra work and make it all the more confusing for students. The videos demonstrated the use of the alphabet along with teaching it to students who seemed to grasp the concept more efficiently then I did. While explaining how certain sounds are made in order to help non-native speakers is helpful, a lot of the unit seemed more confusing than helpful. However, if it is truly a more straightforward manner to teach correct pronunciation, then I will continue to attempt to utilized it in the future.
