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.


The unit shows us a good number of teaching aids and equipment for teaching English. It also explains each one of them and shows how they work and what is their best use. It also helps us to made the best selection between one or the other. Personally I am in favor of all the systems that include a visual support and, especially, of the OHPs, since they obtain a special atmosphere of attention in the classIn this Unit we have learned about the many roles of the teacher and the learner. When teaching adults you have to keep in mind special considerations, for example their maturiy level is higher, you can form bonds with your clients and most will be there by choice. also there is a number of different teaching methods that the teacher can apply but the most common one is the ESA, Engage, Study and Activate.
