Table of Contents TEFL Methodology taught in most TEFL training programs is generally either "PPP" or "ESA" ................................................................................................................................... 7 A lesson plan is simply a step-by-step guide to what an EFL teacher plans to do in the classroom on a given day. The more detailed the steps are, the better ................................ 9 Organizing the board for a more effective lesson is the mark of a skilled EFL teacher. KISS or "Keep it Simple for Students" is a good rule. Before teaching a lesson, walk through it and as you do, put everything on a board . ........................................................ 12 Grammar skills and the ability to explain grammar simply is another hallmark of a skilled EFL teacher. Students expect their teacher to be skilled in grammar and if you aren't, you will probably lack confidence in the classroom . ............................................................... 13 Pronunciation is an area of great difficulty for the untrained EFL teacher. But, with a little training and practice, you can facilitate the improvement of your student's pronunciation almost as well as the seasoned professional. For our purposes here, "pronunciation" will include the instruction of stress, rhythm and intonation . ................. 14 Teaching reading in EFL is a bit different than the way native speakers are taught to read. While vocabulary is an important part of reading, teaching the reading skills of surveying, skimming, scanning, inference, predicting and guessing are just as important. ........................................................................................................................................... 18 Teaching writing is often about teaching grammar. If grammar comes up anywhere in EFL, it is in the writing classroom ..................................................................................... 20 Listening skills are tied to speaking and pronunciation skills . .......................................... 21 Correcting students’ errors in the EFL classroom is an issue of concern for every EFL teacher. What should we correct, when should we correct it and how should it be corrected? ........................................................................................................................... 22 The best way to deal with discipline issues in the EFL classroom is to have a good lesson that is active and encourages the participation of every student in the room. An active student is not usually a problem student ............................................................................ 23 Sparking student motivation is an important part of any teacher's function ...................... 25 It is common sense that students in an EFL classroom may not always understand what their instructor wants them to do when given directions in English. Obviously, they are there to learn English and don't and won't get every nuance of your requests. Gestures and cueing are important . .................................................................................................. 26 Games and activities are an important part of every EFL classroom ................................ 27 As you might guess, "Edutainment" is the marriage of education and entertainment.
