TESOL Videos - TESOL TEFL Reviews - Video Testimonial - TEFL Video Journal - Linda, Part 10
In part 10 of her TEFL review video journal, Linda tells us that she has been studying unit 11 of the 120-hour online TEFL course from ITTT. Unit 11 covers receptive skills which involve the ability to listen and read. The unit teaches trainees how to develop strategies for helping students improve their ability to understand English through reading and listening.
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.
In my own experience with foreign language, I remember enjoying the lessons that included listening, speaking, and acting out far more than those that included reading and writing. I like the hypothetical lesson plan with Elvis and Tom Cruise because it allows students to engage in all of those skills. I can imagine it would be important to identify the students' strengths and weaknesses when it comes to each of those skills and devise a lesson plan that can cater to each student in a way that makes all of the aspects of learning exciting and understandable.
