The course is designed for people who want to learn the English language and learn how to teach it to their students. It consists of 8 modules all together in which I will cover all the aspects to have full command on the English language and how to teach it in a classroom and online environment. This course will cover the 2 modules.
Here you’ll learn what this course is all about and what lies ahead of it. You will also gain knowledge on life as a teacher.
Before getting started, it’s a good idea to really get to grips with what TESOL/TEFL is, what it involves, and some of the other acronyms you’ll see.
By the end of this course, you’ll have covered the essential knowledge and skills needed to prepare and successfully deliver an English language lesson (commonly known as an ESL class).
To get from sitting at home with your notepad, to standing in front of a class we’ll need to cover a lot of content. But don’t worry, to make this journey more manageable, this TEFL course has been divided into several bite-sized parts.
To squeeze the most benefit out of this course, it is important to make sure that you’re using suitable techniques while studying.
Types of words used in the English language, how they’re formed, and how they’re used along with punctuation.
You’ll likely already be aware of some of the topics we’ll cover here – such as verbs and nouns etc.
The first parts of the English language which we’ll cover are the different types of words that exist.
Nouns, verbs and adjectives are usually the first types of words that your students will come across when starting to learn English.
The following three types of words are often introduced after students have an initial grasp of the language, and when they can already form basic sentences.
These final types of words are often small in form, but can be useful in very different ways once mastered by students.
Now that we’re familiar with the different types of words that exist in the English language, it can be useful to understand how they’re often classified into two groups – major words and minor words.
Don’t worry if some of these terms were new to you. For native speakers, and those who have been fluent in English for a long time, these different types of words are often used without conscious thought.
As mentioned in the Types of Words lessons, verbs are words that describe an action or state of an object – whether physical or mental.
To begin with, we’ll look at action and stative verbs. These are two of the more straightforward types of verb, and can be relatively simple to explain to students.
Transitive/Intransitive, Auxiliary, and Modal verbs can be more challenging for students to grasp. Identifying these types of verbs will require students to look deeper at the context of the sentence and the intended meaning.
The final types of verbs which we’ll cover are Phrasal, Regular and Irregular.
Verbs are one of the key building blocks which will enable your students to do so much with the English language.
In the next few lessons, we will cover Affixes,
When it comes to teaching students about affixes, there are certain rules and notes which can be useful to learn.
It can help to start by first introducing common ones such as the prefix ‘un’ or suffix ‘ly’.
In the final part of this module, we’ll look at punctuation.
Periods (Full stops) Periods (also referred to as “full stops”) are used at the end of sentences, and are probably the most common form of punctuation that your students will need to use.
Apostrophes Apostrophes are used in contracted words
Hyphens and dashes Hyphens are used to link words, or parts of words, to give new meanings.
While the majority of ESL lessons will contain little focus on punctuation marks, it’s still important for you to be familiar with them, so that when you do come across a mistake, you’re able to identify it and demonstrate the correct use.
