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.

 

Vocabulary is central to the English language teaching because without sufficient vocabulary students cannot understand others or express their own ideas. Grammar is a study of words and how words are stringed together to form sentences. Particularly as students develop greater fluency and expression in English, it is important for them to acquire more productive vocabulary knowledge and to develop good vocabulary learning strategies.In this unit we focus on pronunciation and phonology. Pronunciation and phonology are made up of intonation, stress, and articulation. Intonation is the variation in volume and pitch a whole sentence. Stress is the 'strong' part of a sentence, typically just one word. Articulation is how you say a word. In order to focus on the sounds and how words should be said we often use the phonetic alphabet instead of typical English lettering.
