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 is a hard topic to approach and digest for me. I find that many students have different needs and desires when it comes to what vocabulary they need or want to learn. I am not yet adept at figuring out when it is appropriate to introduce new vocabulary or grammatical structures, and in fact have not had the chance to introduce things like gerund phrases to my students. I usually react based on my thought process in the moment, and speak out a word that comes to mind, which is oftentimes not helpful for the student. I am learning, slowly, to keep my vocabulary relevant to their usage of those words, their ability with the language, and their desire to learn. I don't know if I have come across it being an issue of which mother language they are coming from. I deeply appreciate this lesson and its discussion of how and when to engage students with new language structures and vocabulary.
