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 evaluating and testing. When I first saw the headline of it, I assumed it must be about grading systems or ways to estimate learner's knowledge with use of written and oral examinations. Although I was surprised to see I was wrong, now I know more about different international English language certificates. However, I would still be more than happy to find out more about grading.Another question viable for the testing portion of this class for this unit concerns the amount of time the teacher spends with his back to his students. For large chunks of time without much/any clear communication to his students, the teacher writes furiously on the board. Even though his eye contact in the first video was cold, dead fish, it's still better than indifferent lack of eye contact.
