Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching.


This Unit didn't include a lot of new information for me but it was still very interesting to repeat some parts and learn about the english terms. I think this Unit shows how difficult it is to manage a classroom but also how important it is to know about how to act (as a teacher) in different situations. Sometimes it is just a small change. To be organized is one of the most important field and helps to have productive lessons.This Unit took a different approach that works well. The first video however, was so cringe worthy it was difficult to sit through. I shudder just thinking about it. Having a video showcasing what not to do in the class room followed by a video without the errors of the first is a good lesson to have. Especially for Online students like myself who don't have a class readily available to sit in and see the differences first hand.
