Welcome to Chile!!  


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 gave me an insight to the student culture. It is important to understand the sensitivity of each student. The unit focuses on the seating arrangements which I never thought could be a big deal. This unit has helped me focus on minute details which are often avoided but necessary. I have become more aware of the students' characters and other such details which are otherwise ignored.In this unit, we learn about ways students can practice their pronunciation and intonation. Different intonations can indicate the different intentions of the speaker. We also learn about IPA, or International Phonetic Alphabet, which can be used to show the pronunciation of words. This is because it’s difficult to tell a word’s pronunciation in English just by reading its spelling.
