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.


Unit 3 covers teaching techniques and classroom activities that can help to make lessons more interesting and productive.part of the methodology are task based learning,communicative language learning and Communicative learning teaching etc.I learnt about the ideas to activate phrase;Role play,surveys,debates or discussion,idea to study phrase: elicitation,pronunciation and ways to correct writingI learned about several different activities that can be used as materials for lessons. I learned it is appropriate for teachers to engage their students by creating their own materials when they see fit. I think it is important to revise and omit certain exercises in the assigned course material as every class and student are different. It is important to tailor each lesson to the students' needs.
