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 discussed about the various cultural issues that I need to bear in mind if I am going to teach in an unfamiliar country. It is best to prepare yourself and study the country’s culture so that a teacher will not be doing something in the classroom that is considered taboo or bad in their culture. This unit also gave sample resume and CV templates that I can use for my application.I quite value the stress on studying and preparing for the lesson. I also value the importance of knowing what the students' reasons for desiring to learn English are. These two factors make me value how much interest and preparation I should put into making my lessons useful or beneficial to my learners. Young learners have their needs and expectations. Adult learners have their needs as well.
