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 was a hard unit. I learned about phonetics, the phonetic alphabet and importance of pronunciation. I learned how to teach and whats important to teach. I like the phonetic chart I found on my iPad and it will help in teaching in the future. I learned about parts of the mouth and which areas that sounds are made. I feel prepared to teach this but may need to review and be careful in selecting activities.This unit was helpful because it reminds the user that they have many options when it comes to teaching tools. A course book can be very helpful but is not necessarily the only option for the classroom. It seems that a combination of authentic material, created material, and a course book would be optimal in the classroom. This would provide the students with a non-mundane atmosphere and is less predictable.
