TEFL 120-hour Course - Unit 9


In her ninth video diary instalment, Chantelle discusses unit 9 of her online TEFL course from ITTT. This unit covers lesson planning and the importance of being well prepared for your lessons. The unit discusses whether there is a need to plan lessons, how a lesson plan should be written and what should be included in a lesson plan. It also looks at ways to plan a sequence of lessons and how important it is for teachers to reflect on past lessons to help improve future classes.

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.

I have learnt about the part of speech a lot. These basic grammatical subjects are too important for teachers and students. A teacher and students confuse prepositions because there is no general rule for it. But we can solve this problem by using prepositions in our speech and examples much more.This has been the most difficulty of the tenses unit. I learnt that although the present simple and the present continuos tenses are usually used as present tenses they can also be employed to the future tense. I also learnt that the future uses variable tenses which was a bit confusing at first.The relationship between learners and students is a very important thing. You're a good teacher when you can catch a balance between uploading a new information, tutoring and motivating your students. As a student of English you should have a desire to learn, focus and achieve your language goals.
