TESOL Videos - English Grammar - Present Continuous for the Future - TESOL Certification
This is what one of our TEFL graduates feels he has gained from the course, or a part of it, and how he plans to put into action what he has learned.
The video provided for this course unit seemed very dated when cassettes, CDS, etc. were recommended as course materials. Today, video and audio resources are readily available online. Teachers can even edit those materials to make them better resources for students, for example, by adding subtitles to a video, cutting key scenes from a film, using an audio recorder to record their own voice and the voices of their students to aid in studying. Actually, lately I have found it very useful to have students record their own voices, play them back to the class, and we can critique the pronunciation, syntax, etc. together. I also often record vocabulary lists of difficult words, so the students can listen and practice on their own time. There are also awesome language applications like Duolingo, that students can download for free on their smartphones, and they can challenge each other for high scores. There's so much fun new technology!
