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 has given me a clear picture on ways of evaluating student's levels and progress. In my opinion, test is very important for teacher to evaluate student's language skill and to know their strengths and weaknesses. If one is weak at certain part, teacher can reinforce learning by preparing supplementary exercises that suit the student. Besides, I've also learnt various external examinations from this unit.This module was actually really helpful, although I must admit, I am more nervous about teaching the more intermediate groups than the beginners! I might need to present a Scottish dialect purely because Scottish vocabulary and accents are entirely different to the rest of the UK... It is also good to know that I can actually teach elsewhere with this qualification rather than just a classroom, that was new to me!
