Do you dream of faraway places and want to use your TEFL skills to experience adventure in a different country? With new opportunities to learn a new language? China offers all the above, environmentally the landscape is vast and diverse as the cities that are built in and around the country itself.

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.


In this unit I learnt about how to structure a class and use methods to deliver the material needed to meet a specific course objective. The unit goes into detail about the ESA method which is widely used. I think while teaching this method would provide a great frame work to follow. The ESA method will be very helpful through out this career of teaching English as a second language.This unit covers conditionals and reported speech. There are five different types of conditionals: zero, first, second, third, and mixed. In reported speech, the verb tense in the direct speech will change accordingly. The time expression in the direct speech will also change accordingly in the reported speech, for example from \"tomorrow\" to \"the day after.\" "Teflonlinenet_210773
