This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
Modal verbs, phrasal verbs, the three different types of clauses and the usage of passive voice have been all covered in this unit. They all present quite a challenge to the students (and teachers alike) and create an essential part of an English language learning. The new subject to me was the usage of commas in the defining relative clauses as opposed to non-defining. It was very well presented and explained, and can, therefore, serve as an example of how to explain it to students. I have considered the examples for role-plays to practice modal verbs. I suppose they are rather useful for teaching them. Apart from doctor-patient role-play, there are other roles we can take on from the real life, e.g. teacher-parent-student role-play came to my mind as well. Whereas the students who were to play teachers could give suggestions to parents about how to improve their child´s behaviour, the students-parents could oppose they had already been doing what had been suggested. The case with learning phrasal verbs is a bit more difficult as it is a more complex topic with many variations, depending on which prepositions or adverbs are added to verbs. As it is suggested in this unit, we should repeat them and include them in our lessons once in a while to make sure that our students can still remember them. This unit has been a well put summary of these grammatical features. However, one ought to read much more in detail about it in order to practice it properly in the class.
