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.


On this unit ,i learnt about pronounciation. It is very important for students to pronounciate given words correctly. Most students lack confidence as they fail to pronounce the words correctly so as the teacher , he will help the students with different techniques.Phonology is also important because it helps on individual sounds in connected speech. Another important technique is linked speech ,it helps students to match the sounds.This unit talks about pronunciation and phonology. Pronunciation is mostly neglected when teaching English especially with foreign teachers due to lack of confidence to teach its methodology or techniques. Phonology on the other hand is the analysis and classification of sounds. In summary, phonology of English in this unit is focused on Stress, Rhythm and Intonation. Moreso, consonant and vowel are also study in detail in this unit.
