Teaching Special Groups in ESL - The 5 Student Groups


There are many different types of groups of students that you will encounter when teaching English as a foreign language. This video introduces you to the five different types of student groups.

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching. This convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.

This unit helps me identify the different ways of evaluating and assessing students' level. The several tests at different stages. The importance of placement test and diagnostic test. It is also very necessary to often give a periodic test to know the progress of your students.I find this Unit as most difficult part of this course. I find hard to feel intonation related to stress in a word, sometimes phonetic alphabets and pronunciation of symbols can be tricky. I learned how to use fall-rise and rise-fall intonation and for what they are being used.To test students gives teachers many ideas of what to do next or where to start to teach the students. In my country, we use test to show how they are good at or how much effort they give on. When teachers see the results of the tests, they might know to give attention more to.
