This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
In this unit we are taught of the different methods of teaching a new language to students, here we went through previous models (though some of them are still in use) and studied where they were good and where they fall short, later on we are introduced to the ESA (Engage, Study, Activate) method which was created by Jeremy Harner in 1998. ESA method was developed from Harner's observations on the positive and negative sides of former methods, he decided to gather the positive results and combine them into this three stage system. Each system fills the gaps left if only one method was used, hence this system is effective for it uses various techniques per stage that complements each other and aids each other's weak spots. As the straight arrow approach to ESA can become predictable the boomerang and the patchwork approach were created to reduce the risk of becoming too repetitive or predictable. This unit also gave emphasis on giving feedback to students and how to hand out corrections sensitively and kindly, this is important if one wishes to keep their students motivated, and this will also help students want to ask questions instead of being afraid to do so due to fear of being shamed.
