The online course was well organised and structured. I particularly liked the clarity of the speaking in the videos, very precise, sometimes short but very focus on the TL. The methodology course is the module I enjoyed the most especially the ‘student centred’ approach similar to the ‘client centred’ approach in psychotherapy.

For the virtual classroom, I would have preferred the real class. Joanne’s two days teaching were very good. She was well organised and the lessons were well structured. She also put into practice the ‘student centred’ approach and managed quiet well between the TTT and the STT.

Nevertheless, we have had time to time some technical issues related to the online course. The virtual practice teaching could be very challenging for the reading skill when the reading text and the questions are not on the same slide of the PowerPoint. Students might not remember the answers to the questions.

In general, I enjoyed this combined course and I recommend it to anyone who intents to undertake the beautiful journey towards TEFL. I think it is more than a career, it is vocation.

The virtual classroom gave a good idea of what to expect when teaching in the classroom. Brushing up on how to lesson plan the PPP structure and the Skills based lesson plan. This was a good ending to what had been learnt online.

Some of the feedback I received online was expected and this reminded me of what I needed to work on and caused additional learning for classroom preparation.

The lesson plans were clear and were a useful guide as to how to carry some of the ideas to the classroom. It was challenging going over a lesson plan again after some key points had been missed out but this also allowed for greater creativity; with the understanding that this would help in future planning for real classroom preparation.

Sometimes the explaining videos had to be listened to again as I was not sure on the explanation. However I can probably agree that it was my interpretation; unless of course others note the same issue.

The resources were very helpful and allowed for coming up with new ideas.

The instructor, Kirsty, was very nice and encouraging. She created a safe space that made it feel natural to practice teaching. The feedback I received from Kirsty and the other students was constructive and helpful. I feel like my teaching skills improved from the course.

The course was organized into a lecture & demonstration day, followed by two days of teaching practice. The lecture and samples presented the assignments and broke down the topic into reasonable parts. Later, our homework was to prepare and teach both a grammar lesson and a skills lesson. It was a much-needed opportunity to practice and it was ideal to practice with other teacher trainees … takes the pressure off!

Thoroughly enjoyed my experience with the online teaching practice and I am feeling much more confident after having participated in it. The only thing I would comment on is that before participating in this section of the course I really didn’t know what kind I was in for. I think more explanation as to what is expected of you and what the course is like before participating in it would be of good use to those participating. Other than that it was a very good experience and I am glad I did it.
