    TEFL assignment help

    Hello,

    I'm a newbie in this forum. Currently I'm taking the TEFL online course at TEFL courses online, TEFL/TESL Certificate, Teach English as a Foreign Language, CELTA certificate . I have a few questions in my assignments which I want help with. I'd be really grateful to anyone who helps me. The questions are as follows:

    1) Why do you think the Grammar Translation or Audio-Lingualism would be good for Auditory Learners?

    2) Why do you think the CLT or TPR methods would be good for Kinesthetic Learners?

    3) Why do you think the Suggestopedia Method would be good for the Environmental Learners?

    4) Why do you think the Silent Method would be good for the Visual Learners?

    Thank you very much in advnce

    They're interesting questions. Perhaps we could discuss it. What are your ideas so far?

    Mind you, they do presuppose our opinions- how would you answer if you didn't think it was a good idea?

    Sorry Tdol, who are you addressing? How would one answer if one thought what wasn't a good idea.

    Raymott: I think Tdol's 'they' refers to the assertions implied by the questions: 'Teaching method X is good for learner type Y'; his 'it' then refers to each of these assertions (severally). I think he's suggesting a rider to each question - 'and if you disagree, say why''.

    He's not addressing you; he's just encouraging a critical response to the way the questions are phrased. (And he might also be suggesting a query about how good a teacher is, asking questions in this way. But I must stop putting words into his mouth; or should that be 'thoughts into his head'???)
