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 reveals the importance of writing a lesson plan, among which are linked to the fact that helps the teacher to think logically through the lesson periods, it helps the teacher to make accurate reference and also helps the teacher proper, accurate and timely record of everything taught to the students. However, the use of lesson note should not be overemphasized in order to allow the teacher to be flexible with his teaching.this unit has really demonstrated real teaching. what i learned from the first video is that the teacher exhibited local way of teaching and it does not follow any of the ESA teaching methods. and also the second video made me known that with the straight arrow ESA teaching method students can enjoy the class irrespective of the vocabulary and grammar that would be using.these two video are very good as far as teaching is concerned.
