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 absolutely loved watching the videos for this unit! Having a visual representation of what not to do and what to do is very helpful. The videos were entertaining and insightful at the same time. The instructor in the videos gave a great example of how to capture the attention of a classroom and teach material. This really showed how simple teaching techniques can affect the way students participate and learn.There are many situations in which an English language teacher will be working with a group that does not fit into the general 'adult' student category. These can include beginners, young children, individual students, professionals, and students from multilingual or monolingual backgrounds. Each group needs to be taught in a more specific way in order to fully address the specific needs and challenges of each.
