TESOL Videos - Why teach in China
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.
In the first full unit of the course we look at a wide range of issues including developmental theories, teaching methodologies for different age groups, the importance of the learning environment and the language skills your students will need to develop. The unit gives us very useful teaching methodogies about teaching different ages. This unit compares L1 and L2, a fascinating thought leading to the goal of mimicking L1 acquisition to L2. It carries on with the split in 2 groups age (5-9 and 9-13), compared later in the unit in an equally captivating way ? For example, I sort of knew that attitude to the opposite sex varied with maturation but it is very useful to be told. Classrooms arrangements were covered in more details than the TEFL course ? I am not sure why it was not covered like that in the TEFL course. Teacher?s role and predictive/ productive skills were a repeat/ reinforcement from the TEL course.
