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 teaches us how to establish rapport with the students via multiple channels such as seating arrangements, eye contact, voice, grouping etc. We learn that different methods help to create varying class experiences. The teacher should bear in mind various factors such as class size in determining the type of class he/she would be most effective in conducting. This would be truly useful in planning and organizing future classes.During this lesson I was able to learn the many structures on how to form a proper sentence. Although I have always been very good with writing, it was interesting to see how many styles of writing that I use on a daily basis that I was unaware of. After this lesson, I can see that I understand much more about the tenses in writing that I currently use now, compared to how much I was able to see them displayed in my writing beforehand.
