Madhya Pradesh - What can I expect?

Madhya Pradesh (pop 60,385,118), often referred to as the 'Heart of India' is a state in central India. The province features several mighty rivers which are possible to cruise. The school itself is located in Katni, one of the largest railway junctions in India. Katni is famous for its marble and sits on the banks of the Katni river. The town was started under British rule and juxtaposes colonial era buildings with traditional India. It is a frontrunner in the Indian education system and the convergence of train lines make onward travel to New Dehli, Mumbai, Chennai, and Hyderabad a possibility.

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 is about teaching special groups. A teacher could need to teach to beginners (students with no English at all, students exposed to the Language before and Young learners), to teach to individual students and to teach children. Also there is a growing amount of teaching to business people, where the type of clients can vary immensely and the teacher needs to plan a lesson based on their specific needs.Teaching new language is at the core of being an EFL teacher, as I know from being a student of another language that I find myself constantly yearning for the teacher to introduce new language to me so that I can expand by vocabulary and improve my speaking. Understanding the different parts of teaching new language and the requirements of each to successfully teach is at the core of being a good EFL teacher.
