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.


In this unit I have established the difference between authentic and created materials and the pro's and con's of each. I have also seen how these can be used in a boomerang lesson shape and therefore how they can be adapted into the various ESA teaching techniques. I have learnt that while authentic materials are hugely beneficial for students, they need to be at a certain level to reap the most benefits.Getting sample lesson materials and learning about the advantages and disadvantages of the use of course books is very helpful. I have enjoyed looking about the websites given in this Unit and seeing what else is out there to help new teacher's. I feel it would be a big advantage to be able to choose the course books as the teacher, rather than being dictated to, as this will help with being more creative.
