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.


In order to evaluate our students, we need to first know what level they are at in their Enlglish. By looking, and assessing , the four skills; reading , writing, speaking and listening, we can place them accordingly by using different tests to place them in the right level. This unit was helpful, for me as a new an upcoming teacher, to know what the different tests I can use to assist me in this area, with my students.This unit is very interesting as it breaks down the 'young learners' group even further and allows you as a teacher to distinguish the differences between the ages. At ages 5-9 students have less concentration therefore you have to keep the activities moving with lots of song and dance and repetition. Where as with ages 9-13 you can use more structure within the lesson as they are more subjective to learn and want to learn.
