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.


Whenever I have taught english as a foreign language to students, I have always hd trouble with time management, meaning I always go through exercises too quickly and am left with an inordinate amount of time wherein I don't have anything for the students to do. I am very grateful for the inclusion of the faux lesson plan at the end. It is that sort of time management, written out, that I needed to see for myself.In unit 5, i have learnt alot, learning divert skills on how to manage a classroom, organising the students,have a friendly and relaxed manner,thus maintaining discipline.i have learned about Eye contact and voice, gesture,how eye contact can be used in a classroom, how to group and pair the students in class.Advantages and disadvantages of TTT,Establishing Rapport.I have learnt a lot as far as this unit is concern.
