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.


Hmmm. The phrasing of most of these questions in the NEGATIVE was definitely a challenge even when I thought I knew a fair bit about managing groups of people (not necessarily in the classroom). Managing the class has a lot to do with the teacher/learner dynamic, as well as the group of students as a whole. It is interesting that expectations are better set at the beginning and potentially relaxed rather than the other way around.As a native speaker I often take grammar for granted when speaking at meetings or having a casual conversation. Upon completing this unit it refreshed my memory of the technical terms used in sentence structuring, such as, proper, countable and uncountable nouns, transitive and intransitive verbs, gerunds and pronouns. As an ESL teacher it is important that he can communicate the proper term (category) of each word to the students.
