TESOL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - Danny
In this TEFL review video Danny gives us a brief tour of Hong Kong where he is teaching English. Danny also outlines his three reasons for choosing to earn his TEFL certificate with ITTT. The first is the great flexibility ITTTâ€™s courses provide, with six months to complete the course students are able to work in their own time and fit their studying around any other commitments they may have. The second is the reviews he read about the course online. The third is the affordability of ITTTâ€™s courses allowing you to earn a teaching certificate without stretching your budget.
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.
The last unit covered troubleshooting and common problems found in the classroom. It covered the first lesson and how to establish rapport with the students. I thought it was interesting that it was recommended not to use the course book on the first day of class. Icebreakers or warmers were suggested to help the students start to get to know each other and help to build rapport in the class. Suggestions were given on how to teach different levels of students in the same class as well as classes that are large. Other problems such as students using their native language in class or students who won't participate were also addressed. This unit gave more insights on what to expect and how to manage a variety of classroom situations.
