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 17 describes the equipment & teaching aids used by EL teachers. Among them I am listing a white - & blackboards, IWBs, OHPs, visual aids, worksheets & work-cards, the cassette recorder, a CD player, videos & DVDs, a video camera, dictionaries, course bookds, resource books, photocopiers, computers, online resources. I am very grateful for all the links given in the Unit. A very useful material. Thank you.This unit dealt with the use of course books and materials. I do not have a coursebook so I use a random English textbook and try to adapt it to the needs of my students. I make the majority of my materials. However, I never thought of using authentic materials from other sources such as magazines and newspapers. I thought it would be discouraging but I am willing to give it a try and see how my students respond.
