Hi to one and all.
I've nearly finished my 120hr course - thoroughly enjoyed it but it was tougher than I expected it to be, though I've passed it all so far. I'd just like to pass on some things regarding assignments to anyone just starting out - hindsight is a wonderful thing...
Give yourself plenty of time - don't sit down on a sunday afternoon and think you're going to do a whole assignment, plan to spread it over two or even three days or else you just end up going over the same things and coming up with no sensible answers - yet the next day it all seems to drop into place.
On the subject of time, whilst looking for help with assignment questions I got so sidetracked reading round the topics on the net my assignments took me ages. It's all beneficial, but it eats your time away.
Save everything you type as often as possible - I know it says so, but DO IT. It's annoying having to scroll up and down the page to get back to where you were, but not half as bad as having to re-do (and re-remember) everything you wrote because you accidently closed the wrong window or hit Ctrl and shift by mistake! There are several false keystrokes that will wipe out all your work.
Read the whole assignment before you start. While searching for help with one question you might spot things that can help with a later question and it gives a more rounded approach to your work.
Use all the material that you are given - don't just download it for later, use the Teachers toolkit and the lesson plan book, but stock up on printer cartridges if you want to print it all out - there's a mountain of it! Watch the videos and look up the 'net references.
Get cracking - don't cut it fine, you might have to re-do a question. Just remember, i to i make money from you if you need to extend, so they're not going to give you way too much time are they?!
Good luck. P.S for anyone doing Young learners there's a brilliant list of games on eslkidstuff.com For the rest of the stuff you have to subscribe - £16 but it looks good.
