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 looked at the different methods and techniques that can be used in teaching language. Some examples include the grammar-translation method which involves translating directly from one language to another, and the task-based learning method which includes giving students tasks to work on, while the teacher monitors and can help. I learnt that each technique has its own strengths and weaknesses, so the best method to use depends on the circumstances. I also learnt that it is important to keep in mind that students need a lot of exposure to the language, and that the students learn best when they are not stressed or anxious. Furthermore, I also learnt that one effective method to teach language is the Engage, Study, and Activate Method. The Engage phase is a warm-up. Students are engaged and involved in activities that encourage the students to think and talk in the English language. In the Study phase, the teacher elicits information from the students, presents the language point, gives exercises to check students' understanding, and reviews the answers with the students. Finally, in the Activate phase, the students are encouraged to use all what they have learnt and know in activities such as role-plays and communication games. The lesson plan should always start with an Engage phase and end with an Activate phase. The order in between them can vary. It is important to give and receive feedback from the students and to recognise the differences between mistakes and errors.
