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 introduced me to what Business English is and what I'm going to develop through this course. Very important is to understand what English for Specific Purpose is and how it should be handled with different students coming from various work fields. I expect to better understand my future opportunities and how I can relate to companies as well as create a perfect Resumè and start with my new adventure.This unit provided guidelines for managing students and organizing a classroom. The benefits of eye contact, gestures, voice, maintaining discipline, and establishing rapport for managing students were listed in this unit. Instruction on how to organize a classroom based on multiple factors was also covered. Also, pairwork and groupwork were also suggested as activities that could increase student participation.
