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.


There are many different obstacles when teaching new vocabulary or grammar. There are some aspects of those new elements that are crucial to teach, and some that are not as important for people learning English as a second language (like the origin of a word). This unit gave us different ways to introduce new vocabulary and grammatical structures to the students, like a patchwork ESA lesson and a straight arrow ESA lesson.This unit was a introduction to the training course in teaching english to young learners. The unit set the stage for what is to come, objectives and describing who is the young learner. Aims and objectives were covered as well as defining common acronyms to provide clarity going forward. Prospects in an interesting component of the unit as one starts to think about where this knowledge and certification will take them.
