I completed my TEFL course at Íbero on May 29th, 2015. I found the TEFL course to be a very helpful crash course in what I should expect from teaching English. At first, I thought that the course would mainly revolve around reviewing the English grammar rules that I haven’t really paid attention to since primary and secondary school. The course did focus on this for one week, with a particular emphasis on some of the most useful ways to explain things. The TEFL book by Íbero was great. I have used the coursework to help me compare and contrast verb tenses, as well as teach the different ways the English language makes use of Gerunds (-ing words). More than the grammar however, the most practical benefits gained from the course include categorizing the students’ existing knowledge base into levels, knowing what materials are appropriate to learn at each one of these levels, and how handle classroom dynamics in which students vary in understanding or fluency. No doubt that the practice sessions were helpful. They are useful because prior to the practice sessions, I spent a lot of time in a classroom discussing the theory and the best practices. It was good to approach it from the theoretical side, but actually being in a classroom with a language learner for an hour helped me see some of the struggles in person. Exposure to this environment brought things to my attention and the subsequent discussions with my instructor helped to make what I was learning in class more applicable to the real-world teaching experience. The job placement was very useful. By providing contacts to the various language institutions I was able to find enough teaching hours to break even on expenses. However, getting hired by the companies and arranging schedules are two different things. As you are aware, there are a lot of factors that must be arranged before the first day of class even starts such as the day and time and location. If in the beginning you aren’t careful when scrambling for enough hours, you run the risk of making commitments that pull you all around town. Thanks again for everything, Jim Clark, USA
Terminé mi curso TEFL el 29 de marzo de 2016. Fue genial la experiencia aquí. Al inicio tenía poco miedo de verdad es que no sabía nada de la escuela y leí cosas negativas… desde primer momento que entré a esta atmosfera increíble entendí que de verdad la situación era al revés! Mi profe aquí y la directora sólo trataron que yo tengo la mejor experiencia! El curso fue genial – tanta mucho trabajo la profe puso para ayudar nos, para apoyarnos con cualquier pregunta que tuvimos.. ahora me siento mucho más listo para enseñar inglés. La directora me ayudó mucho también.. la cosa más importante es que se preocupa de ti! Se preocupa de ti no solo si estás pagando por el curso, pero se preocupa si te gusta el curso, si te vas a encontrar trabajo después. Es una chica genial.. y este todo me hizo sentir muy bien y satisfecho. Son personas que quieren de verdad a ayudarte nomás! Ivan Loginov, Russia.
