Feedback for Regular In Class TESOL
Post On : 27-07-2017
I would like to center this experience based on y reflections after the course.
When I had decided to enroll for this course, I was quite apprehensive about my trainer as I firmly believe a teacher is like a flame who ignites your passion for teaching.I was taken aback when a very, sweet voice called me up 2 days before the commencement of my course and I was absolutely thrilled to know that she would be my trainer, Ms. June.Her voice had an immediate calming effect on me.
I would like to mention that the hands-on activities, specially the one along with music resonated well with me. It's amazing how music can enhance a lesson.The trainer was extremely patient and provided us a step- by-step demo along with the lesson plans.
I couldn't have asked for better peers as we had a ball of a time apart from learning new content.
But along the roller coster ride came a bump.It was pouring cats and dogs ,the school where we had to go for teaching practice had declared a holiday for the students. We were in a fix and it was decided that we would be the ACT staff.It was challenging as they were beginners and I had no insight into their background.But as I am quite persistent by nature, I was determined to put in all my learning into this lesson. This teaching experience will be one that i will cherish forever.
A word to TEFL aspirants-Being in the teaching profession since the last 20 years, one needs to come in with an open mind. I left with a vast knowledge coupled with practical experience in the classroom.One needs to be a blank page in order to write your own script in TEFL.
