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.


Use of a course book is a very important decision. Buying and using one that turns out to be less than appropriate would be an expensive mistake. I learned that course books can be useful, but they should not control the teacher--the teacher needs to make decisions based upon the students' needs. The course book, like created materials, are just tools that have to be used with discretion.In Unit 7, I have discovered that receptive skills (reading and listening) are exceptionally important in learning language. There are ways to easily provide information and lesson plans for learning with receptive skills. These involve making sure that students are motivated by keeping them interested and engaged in the lessons taught. Variety helps in keeping the students interested.
