This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
There are 2 general types of group that you will come across as a teacher. The first is a completely new group where the students are both unfamiliar with each other and probably the way the lesson and subject will work. The other is an existing group where students are already aware of the class form and at ease with each other. Both have challenges. A new group will require a full introduction of the course, each other and of course, the teacher. The existing group will need the teacher to be particularly clear in how they are going to teach and what is expected of the students possibly differing from previous teachers even if same material and topics. Specific activities can help with both.
Other possible problematic areas can be student numbers in the class, students in your group being at various language levels and reluctant individuals.
Listening activities are sometimes feared and avoided by teachers but these should be consistently used and worked on as they are an imperative part of successful language development.
It is essential that teachers always speak English and over prepare for classes (e.g. always have extra for those who are quicker etc.)
