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 was very descriptive with the information which gave me lots of help with being able to teach pronunciation more effectively. It also made me realise the important of teaching pronunciation and how to teach it properly. The intonations in the unit was the most helpful part for me because of how easily i could understand the information and explanation that was given and i'll be able to apply it when teaching others.The last lesson focuses on the class atmosphere. It is about the class room management and the regulations you should implement inside the classroom. It tells you very clearly that traditionally where you should use the native language of students and where you should avoid it. And also where you should use more activities. The whole course was fun. I am looking forward to completing the lesson plan after this. Thank you ITTT
