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.


When reading this section I found the different Roles of the teacher very interesting and useful. This unit had made me aware of what roles I would fill easily and which roles I will most likely need to work on to improve my ability to teach effectively. The roles I could stand to improve upon are organizer and prompter its important for me to remember not to take away the students initiative when they are learning.This unit is very clear and helpful in explaining the Parts of Speech. This is the foundation of English grammar. As usual grammar is always challenging for both teacher and students but it was made simple. The irregular verb chart was useful and I hope teachers encourage students to just memorize it. The countable and uncountable nouns is a challenge for most students but with the examples given it should be easy.
