アリゾナ州立大学(Arizona State University) による Teach English Now! Foundational Principles の受講者のレビューおよびフィードバック



Through a series of engaging metaphors and stories, prospective and current EFL/ESL teachers will identify, summarize, and evaluate 7 basic language learning paradigms. Learners will be presented information on such foundational principles as motivation, risk taking, two different modes of learning, and balancing the teacher profession. Learners are also given an understanding of basic techniques founded on those principles, such as teacher talk, looking “ridiculous” in order to lower the affective filter, and networking. With these foundational principles in mind, ESL/EFL teachers will scrutinize common assumptions about language learning by comparing how they stack up to research-based core principles....

This is a very useful course as I begin my studies to prepare to teach English abroad. ASU is a recognized university and the price is very reasonable. I look forward to the next course in the series.



Great course! Nice content and great presentation of the material. Useful not only for ESL teachers, but for all language teachers and even for teachers in general. Thank you for creating this course!

I found this course very good for new teachers, but a little repetitive for experience teachers. Still, a great course implemented with knowledge and enthusiasm.

O curso é bem fraco para pessoas que já tenham conhecimento em ensino de inglês como língua estrangeira, porém possui pontos fortes para quem está começando.

It gives a great introduction to language teaching! The only thing I think could make it better is to add more challenging questions to the weekly quizzes.

by Sarah G


It would have been a five star review if all the assignments weren't the same :( It gets boring doing the same thing over and over and over again!



The same reason with course 2 . This course is perfect . I would recommend this one to my friends if any one needs it . But not friend around me

This was a good class. The peers gave good feedback. It was a basic class that could be taken by someone who did not have classroom experience.

I found Course 1 of the 4 courses to be of great benefit, not only to teaching English - but to teaching, supporting, and learning in general.

by Hector S


I loved the course. I think it gives very applicable advice to those of us who want to teach English as a second language.

Thank you Coursera.

hi its ayesha all i can say is every teacher should regardless of subject and field as language is a meager part of any learning experience

It's awesome even though I taught English for 6 years. I do recommend ASU to make it also suitable for children not only adults oriented.

Great teachers, fantastic techniques and information. My only complain is that the certificate doesn't comes with the number of hours.

Most of videos are great but I think instructors can provide more details for each one, because most of ideas are general and normal.
