This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
Since I am currently an English teacher for children and beginners I found this information to be correct for me and my situation. It is very important to read the environment of the classroom and adjust to your students needs with both children and beginners. When doing activities with children it is important to control the pace of the activity. Many times one child will pay attention to every detail making sure everything is perfect before moving on, while the rest of the students are breezing through the activity. I have found that when doing a colouring in activity I need to maintain control of the crayons and the instructions. For example, I will say \"what color are ladybugs?\", students answer, and I respond \" right, red, color the ladybug red.\" Then the students will ask me for a red crayon. With older students the activities do not need to be as controlled and as you build trust with the children the lessons run smoothly. I agree that a teacher should not speak to the children in their native language, however I do find it important to connect with them. After a holiday I will ask the children what they did in their native language before we begin our lesson. With both beginners and children building confidence is important to keep them motivated to learn.
I thought the section on teaching English to business professionals was helpful. Their outcomes and objectives vary greatly from typical English classes. I also appreciated the needs analysis form and found it helpful.
