TEFL 120 hrs end of course test

Unread post by wynette » Mon Nov 12, 2018 11:59 am

Hi I'm Wynette

I really need some help with the following questions (between a household
and kids). Busy with my second attempt :(



Choose from the following:
a: Presentation, Practice, Production
b: The Direct Method
c: The Communicative Method
d: The Grammar Translation Method
e: Test-Teach-Test
f: Task Based Learning
g:The Eclectic Method
h:The Silent Way
i: The Audio Lingual Method
j: Total Physical Response


1: The teacher asks their students to stand, sit, dance, run, clap and
shout – which they do. The class then play a game of Simon Says taking it
in turns to lead the activity.
Answer: .....................................

2: The teacher presents sentences to the class and asks them all to repeat,
firstly as a group and then individually with the teacher providing
feedback on accuracy and pronunciation. The approach is teacher led and
focusses largely on repetition of core structures and sentences – not only
in the classroom but also in language labs where available
Answer: .....................................

3: The teacher aims to be as quiet as possible in the classroom allowing
their students to produce as much language as possible through exploration
with minimal instructions. Cuisenaire rods can be used to represent word
forms or structures but the focus is on experimentation by the learners
using the blocks of language that have been introduced
Answer: .....................................

4: The teacher works hard to ensure that as many activities as possible
focus on interaction in the classroom with this interaction being both the
means and the goal of learning the language. Activities used will include
role play, interviews, games, activities and pair work. The ability to
interact in the new language is the key to all that is done in the
classroom
Answer: .....................................

5: A teacher varies the techniques and approaches they use in the classroom
based on what they believe works best for different items they are teaching
and the students in the class. Some activities may focus on grammatical
accuracy, others on fluency and others on tasks and projects.
Answer: .....................................

6: The teacher asks the students to work through an activity comparing the
present perfect with the present perfect continuous. Errors are picked up
and the teacher presents the grammatical rules and then asks the students
to practice in small groups.
Answer: .....................................

7: The teacher focusses most of their attention on grammatical points,
often explaining rules in depth and in the learners L1 if possible.
Learners begin by reading and writing with the teacher ensuring that
mistakes are not made in the structure of the language produced, at the
expense of fluency and verbal communication.
Answer: .....................................

8: A group of students are given a travel guide and asked to plan a 2 week
holiday for next year and then to sell the holiday to other students in the
class, focussing on reasons why their trip would be the best
Answer: .....................................

9: A method of teaching where L1 is never used, grammar is taught
inductively, concrete vocabulary is introduced through demonstration, mime
and pictures and abstract vocabulary is introduced through association of
ideas
Answer: .....................................

10: The teacher introduces a new grammatical structure to the class through
mime and pictures whilst modelling the actual sentence containing the new
structure. The students drill this structure and are then given a short
activity helping them to produce short sentences featuring the same
grammatical point. The final activity involves the students producing their
own sentences in pairs whilst the teacher walks around the class helping
and providing feedback.
Answer: .....................................
