TEFL 120-hour Course - Unit 2

 

In this episode of Chantelle’s TEFL diary she takes us through her experiences with the second unit of her online TEFL course. Unit 2 of ITTT’s 120-hour TEFL course focuses on parts of speech; nouns, verbs, adjectives etc. As Chantelle points out in her video, having a basic understanding of the rules behind parts of speech is an important part of being an English teacher and is something that many native speakers of English take for granted. Although, as native speakers, we may instinctively know when and where to use the different parts of speech; understanding how to explain the rules to an English learner is a very different matter.


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 helped me understand that a teacher has many roles. There is no one correct way of teaching. There are also many different kinds of students and we must try to find the best role to play for a specific lesson or group. We must do our best also to motivate them but not to spoon-feed them.I did not realize until Unit 12 that handwriting was important when teaching writing, but it makes perfect sense. I can remember learning cursive and writing on my desk with shaving cream and my fingers. It is necessary to know how to write when learning more in depths concepts to writing english.I found this lesson to be difficult. I had to really think about the Engage and Practice model. I am not quite certain each practice phase couldn't be changed in order. After reading through the questions and possible answers I think I cracked the code. I also wonder if anyone is reading this.
