You'll need to do a little research about living in Malaysia before sending your details. We're only interested in sincere people who want decent working/living conditions while teaching in a fun and structured environment. We maintain high standards of excellence, which in turn, translates into quality tuition that the parents are looking for. Thus, if you're willing to make this kind of commitment, then I'll be more than happy to answer whatever questions you might have.

A copy of our contract is available upon request.

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.

 

I found this unit very interesting, especially the review of reported speech, something I hadn't thought of in a very long time. The same goes for the structure of the conditionals, it's something I use very often but I don't need to think how to put the right tenses to mean what I want to say. I found the suggested teaching ideas very useful, interesting and entertaining, in particular the \"nuclear bunker role play\This unit covered teaching and learning. There are three main theories of learning and many minor ones including: Maturation theory, environmental theory, and constructivism. The unit also covered the difference between L1 and L2 and the importance of language learning instead of acquisition. The 6 roles of the teacher were also covered along with a general maturity difference between 5-9 year olds and 9-13 year olds.
