Lessons from the DELTA teaching qualification course
Гостевой пост от коллеги, Hanna Yurk, о том, как курс DELTA повлиял на ее подход к преподаванию. Я не стала переводить текст. Подозреваю, о DELTA будет интересно почитать тем, кто уже на том уровне английского, где перевод не нужен. Не правда ли?))
Are you tossing up whether or not to take the DELTA (Diploma in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) one day? A lot of people have asked me if it’s really worth it, considering the huge financial commitment and the time and effort involved. I’ve always tried to be completely honest with them: it’s no stroll in the park. Say goodbye to your social life, and get ready to have a few more grey hairs at the end of it!
So is it worth it? Absolutely! If you are passionate about teaching and want to take your learning to the next level, consider how the DELTA can transform your teaching style and validate your teaching practice. I’ve taught both English lessons online and in the classroom to groups and individuals and I can say that everything I learned on the course applies no matter the teaching situation. Although I could write a whole book about this, I’m going to share with you four important lessons I learned from taking the DELTA and how they have shaped my teaching.
