Start Learning !
The course features three short sessions during which the TEFL course participants learn a little of an unknown language. This will help them to become familiar with the following:
a) How to start a lesson when nobody speaks each other’s language.
b) Understand what their prospective EFL students feel when they start learning English.
c) Practice another method they can use when teaching difficult language. This method will help their students to better understand the concept.
TEFL students learn particulars of organizing a classroom, teacher-student rapport development, maintaining discipline in class, techniques to turning around an unruly class, and creating a high-energy class. <
TEFL course participants learn techniques to test the fluency level of their EFL students. The test results help them write a student evaluation in which they suggest to their practice students ways to improve their proficiency in the various areas of English.
While reviewing English grammar, the TEFL course participants observe sample grammar classes that later on help them prepare interesting grammar classes for their own EFL students.
Starting with a journey throughout centuries of language teaching till the present time, our TEFL course students will familiarize themselves with the beginnings of teaching languages. They learn how to gradually help their own students to develop language skills and how to effectively teach grammar and vocabulary. Most importantly, they will learn how to structure their individual classes, so they lead their students to recognizing their actual progress. Our TEFL graduates will also be familiar with assessment strategies and the different benchmark systems in the world.
By the end of the TEFL program, course participants will be thoroughly familiar with the elements of a lesson plan, and the different sequences when planning skill development or vocabulary/grammar segments. They will be able to design lesson plans that have students successfully learn the focus of the lessons. Our course emphasizes the design of classes. It is here where the true skills of a teacher come alive. An excellent lesson plan is, most often, a prerequisite to getting hired at high-paying schools.
In order to help our TEFL trainees to quickly acquire indispensable teaching knowledge, they have to observe and evaluate the classes of their peers. Learning by observing other teachers will ultimately help them to critically look at their own classes.
WHAT OUR STUDENTS ARE SAYING
It has been a week since the course started and so far, I really enjoy it. It is a very fruitful and enriching experience
Steven Jacobson is a very competent trainer. With many years of practice, he enables the course to be of interest and he is keen to always explain and go further. His enthusiasm is big, and I really like his lectures.
The training environment allows me to progress every day. Everything is there for me to study and learn properly.
The training is useful so far. I have learned a lot regarding the methodology, the knowledge I was lacking. I am in the process of learning the tools which will allow me to organize a lesson properly.
As we are only a few students, I have no other choice than to participate actively in the course. This gives me some opportunities to develop some of my skills and to gain trust.
