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.


In this unit, I learned multiple ways of actually teaching a language to students. From introducing vocabulary to teaching grammatical structures, this unit built upon the previous unit about the Engage-Study-Activate lesson structure (and its variations). I found this unit especially useful because it provided general language-teaching guidance that I could possibly utilize teaching other languages.This unit provides many ideas on how to run a class and creating a balanced effective teaching method. The unit provide many examples that we as student has experienced before and using that we could reflect on how effective the activities was to us as a student. However this unit would be more useful and clear if more diagram is added to show the process and details of how teaching can be conducted.
