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 talks about the basic principles of lesson planning, here we look at why teachers plan their lessons, whe they have to include in the planning process as well as how to produce a lesson plan that is practical and easy to use in the classroom. this lesson plan is of great importance because it helps the teacher to have a good timing and planning of lessons and makes him or her a well organised teacherTo me, it’s the most interesting and useful unit I've read so far as it gives examples of lesson planning and gives really valuable pieces of advice how to teach more effectively. I consider lesson planning a core of teaching even though it’s mentioned it may turn a class into teacher-centered one, I believe that if planned well it can allow a great deal of flexibility and concentration on a student.
