My name is Albert and I’m a new member at Eslbase. I live in Colombia (medellin) and i’ve aquired my certificate through Global Language Training; I’m a bit sad because it says that I’ve been awarded grade B; so i want to know if that’s good or just not bad. Also i want to ask about your opinions on the flipped classroom method. any suggestions or tips can come in handy.
Thak you all so much!

Different course providers have different grading criteria, so without seeing the criteria used by Global Language Training, it’s difficult to say whether a Grade B is “good” or not.
As for flipped classroom methodology… this basically reverses traditional “in-class” and “homework” activities, so that you would read the core course material at home before the class, leaving classroom time for practice and discussion. In a TEFL classroom, the advantage would be providing a far greater amount of time than is normally the case for practising the language, which is of course vitally important. The potential downside would be ensuring that all learners had adequately understood the input at home…. and that depends, as always, on the quality of the material and how it is presented.
