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 two lessons are very different. while the first video shows very boring and ineffective lesson, the second video shows me the way to conduct a good lesson. While watching the videos, I was able to recognize my mistakes and think what I can possibly do to avoid them and improve my teaching. It is very clear that in order to make a good lesson you should be positive and engage students in various activities as much as possible.Unit twenty is over trouble shooting or solving issues in class. The unit goes over different issues that arise in the classroom. The unit also provides suggestions and proper ways to solve and alleviate those issues. Some of the problems that were focused on were how to deal with first lessons, how to \"war,\" or initiate a class with icebreakers, how to deal will class sizes etc. This unit was straightforward and easy to follow.
