This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
When learning a new language, students need to be exposed to the new language, understand the meanings & how it's constructed, and be able to apply the new language and produce it.When teaching new vocabularies, teachers might need to select the vocabularies according to the appropriacy to students, appropriacy to the task, frequency and coverage and teachability. Students need to know the meaning, usage, word grammar, interaction, spelling and pronunciation of new vocabularies. Teachers usually use straight arrow technique to teach new vocabularies.
When learning a new language structure (new grammar), students need to know the meaning, usage, forms and patterns, and spoken& written form.A typical ESA patchwork grammar lesson is: engage, activate, study, activate, study, activate.
Language functions include areas such as inviting, agreeing and disagreeing,refusing, suggesting,and appropriacy of the language. The most effective way of teaching language function are:boomerang and patchwork. Role playing plays an important role when teaching new language function.
