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 module was a bit daunting for me because I'm very nervous about teaching who might have special needs. I learnt a lot of dos and don'ts though and I'm gaining my confidence to teach slowly but surely. After studying this module Im considering teaching business English. A lot of the things I thought were OK to do are actually not that beneficial like not being scared to make fun of yourself in front of students.This section of teachers and learners was an interesting perspective for me of the teaching environment from both sides. It taught me the various roles that a teacher has to follow such as manager, organizer,model and other roles to become a \"good teacher\". It also taught me the various levels and understanding of learners to to be cognizant of the type in order to structure a good course of learning curriculum.
