TESOL children's level course learning


Time flies. I finish my one week TESOL training for Children Program.

From this training, I benefit a lot from this training. I know how to manage an perfect English class for my students.

We learned many different kids activities. Such as Musical Drum, Touching game, Big Wind Blows, Hitting Monsters, Lucky Ball Games, Jumping to the flashcards, Flashcards, Back to back, My feeling, Game squatting and Through the dice.

How to teaching vocabulary is a good topic. First of all, the most effective way is teaching vocabulary in context. There are two advantages: (1)students remember the word better. (2)students see how the words are used. Secondly, use all kinds of stories: children’s stories, news, jokes, magazine articles. Thirdly, teaching by using word-formation.


Also what is lesson plan, how to make a lesson plan are very good. Lesson plan is the aims of your class, a plan is a guide for the teacher. It’s just like a journey. Lesson plan should include stage aim, teacher activity, student activity, interaction and timing. We can make two types of lesson plan, short term lesson plan and long term lesson plan. It is essential to know and apply the most appropriate teaching methodsto students with different needs. I will use TESOL Direct Method and TPR in particular. I am a physical learner, and I prefer to teach using physical activities as well, such as body movements, acting things out, and some hand-on activities. Walking meeting is another good way I would like to try. However, I will take students’ learning styles, language levels, cultural backgrounds and other factors into consideration while choosing teaching methods.

Teaching methods will use during our class include direct method, T.P.R, communicative, Natural method and Russia’s method.

We learned eight types of word formation, which includes compounding, conversion, clipping, blends, backformation, acronyms, onomatopoeia and eponyms.

And the thinking map helps me a lot. It includes eight kinds of maps, bubble map, double bubble map, flow map, mutiflow map, circle map, tree map, brace map and bridge map. Now it’s much easier for me to teach different kind of words.

Being a teacher, we must set a good model to our students and make our class more fun .so today I am going to talk about how to make our class more fun.

On the one hand, our class should have different kinds of teaching method. for example. we can use TPR cognitive approach nature approach Russia’s method communicative and language teaching our class. I like TPR and direct method best .for example, I   want to teach the student at the age of 7.I will use both of the method in my class.

If I want to make the topic: fruits ,I will show them real apple. let my student to touch smell and taste. This teaching method will inspire my students’ interest and learning motivation. They can also use this teaching method in daily life. They can be a little teacher when they at home. Using real things to learning and teaching. All in all this method is not only a teaching method but also a learning method.


If I want to make my class more logical.   TPR is the best choice. for example my topic is vegetable .I will show my class step by step. step 1: I   will show some flashcards with gesture to my student. Repeat these words 5 times, and say some sentences. step 2 I will ask them some questions and do what I do say what I   say. step 3 I will do some   vocabulary games in our class. My students will love it so much. step 4.I will give some questions to my students and choose them as a little teacher to command   others. That will be a vivid and funny class.

TESOL children training supplies so many method to us . Not only teaching   method but also learning method. I Learn so many methods in this training. These will be a treasure for me.   

Generally speaking, TESOL training a lot of skills about how to teach English for children. Also makes my teaching more interesting. I will take full advantage of those methods. Hope I can be a better English teacher in the future.
