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 has proved to be the most useful, the material it provides is just perfect. The information I received about the material used in class has helped me in the creative sense, unit fourteen really has me thinking of new interesting ways to teach certain lessons. The authentic material really does motivate students while in class, and creative material adds character and targets specific lessons.This unit covered examination of students. It went over several different types of examination, their purposes, and when they should be administered. The unit also extensively covered various different external exams that students might be interested in taking or required to take by their school. In this unit I learned about diagnostic exams, which was a form of examination I was previously unaware of.
