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.
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 chapter gives a general description of lesson plans and what the uses for lesson plans are. It teaches that you do not want to be inflexible with your lesson plans. Most experienced teachers just jot down notes and bullet points to use as reference. It is very helpful as a record keeping toolWith the clearly identifying of all 7 types of future tenses, I am capable to teach future tense; with confidence on giving concept and leading examples; However when it comes across with other tenses I would need to learn more regarding all tenses in English; I'm looking forward to further units.From the video unit 10, it was most enjoyable contents so far. Two different video shows that what is important what is not allowed which is better than others. It was more useful to me even, rather than just reading the theory from the material. I learned teachers maketh the attitude of learners.
