TESOL Videos - TEFL 120-hour Course - Unit 4
In this video diary entry, Chantelle discusses unit 4 of her TEFL course. This unit covers the present tenses; present simple, present continuous, present perfect and present perfect continuous. The structures, usages and possible teaching ideas for each tense are outlined in the unit as well as common errors made by learners. The tenses are an aspect of the language that many native speakers of English struggle with as they are not explicitly taught in schools and, as Chantelle mentions, this was one of the more difficult units she has studied so far in the course.
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.
This unit focused on lessons taught by a teacher in a classroom setting; offering incorrect and correct examples. The takeaways I learned from this unit were that a teacher's attitude can dictate whether the lesson will be successful (or not) and that in order to include everyone's participation, one should try to make an attempt to call on all students in a positive manner.
