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 11 covered the teaching of receptive skills.
Receptive skills are reading and listening. While productive skills are speaking and writing.
The unit covered the specialist skills that readers and listeners use when reading or listening and in turn how much they will understand depends on their expertise in these areas.
The specialist skills were; predictive skills, specific information (scanning), general idea (skimming), detailed information and deduction from context.
Another focal point of the unit was the importance of which topics are used during lessons. Not all students will find the topics interesting, so it is important to not just pick topics that you (the teacher) find interesting and assume that all the students will as well. To help make topics interesting the teacher can start by discussing the topic, use pictures, videos or songs to help generate interest in the topic.
