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.


We have learned different methods of teaching English such as grammar translation, audio-lingualism, presentation-practice-production, task based learning, communicative language teaching, community language learning, the silent way, suggestopaedia and the lexical approach. Then we learned ESA method which consists of Engage, Study and Activate stages. We learned what to do and what not to do in each stagesUnit 4 is the first of the lessons on the tenses, of which there are twelve. However, we focus on the three main ones for lower level learners in order to simplify things. This lesson and the following ones will serve as a good reference to use when explaining grammar. Not only can I periodically check my understanding of the material, but I can pull examples for lessons or in response to student questions.
