In this TEFL review, Paula from Argentina discusses how she had been teaching English prior to taking her TEFL course with ITTT but wanted to earn another qualification before moving to teach English abroad. Paula chose to study with ITTT because it offered her the flexibility to complete the TEFL course at her own pace. Even though she had already been working as an English teacher, Paula found the lesson plans and teaching ideas very useful and would recommend the course to anyone thinking of teaching English as a foreign language.
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 gave an outline on the different forms of past tenses. This form can really trick ESL learners so it was really useful to see it in a structured form. It outlines the different ways of expressing actions that occurred in the past, as used in storytelling. Being able to distinguish between an action that occurred before a past action whilst telling a story is really important. The chapter went through the Past Simple, which is as easy as "I Worked" through the past continuous (I was writing), past perfect (I had been walking) and the past perfect continuous (I had been walking). I learnt how to tell the distinction between the Past Perfect Continuous and the Past Perfect, of which previously I was not acutely aware. I found the activate ideas really helpful and practical to apply in my lesson plans.
