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 has introduced learning and developmental theories which would be suitable for language learners or learners of any subject. The theories included Maturationists, Constructivists, Environmentalists and Cognitive Developmentalists and may require further reading from myself on the subject. This unit has also taught me the difference between language learning and language acquisition. Language learning requires a student to actively seek instruction, usually from a teacher and in a classroom environment, while language acquisition is when a student 'acquires' knowledge from immersing in the language thereby learning sub-consciously. It was also informative to learn about the different approaches and considerations to take when teaching different age groups as well the effects certain seating arrangements may have on the students learning or for certain activities and should therefore all be considered. It was also interesting to learn the varying and important roles a teacher may have depending on the circumstances, at times acting as an instructor, facilitator, mentor, psychologist, counselor or a policeman. Overall a very informative and insightful unit! "
