Hefei, Capital of Anhui Province, is what's known as a 'small Chinese city' but it has a population of about 5 million people. The locals are extremely friendly and it's an ideal place to learn Chinese. The eating culture here is what many people find most attractive about the city. Busy local restaurants with huge varieties of dishes can be found absolutely everywhere. You'll never be short of invitations to dinner and visits to KTV (karaoke). The school is situated in the city center. It is a busy and friendly environment. The accommodation provided by the school is a short walk away in a leafy neighborhood with parks and lakes. As for traveling, Hefei is situated near the Yellow Mountains, other major cities such as Nanjing is only 50 minutes away and Shanghai about 3 hours away with bullet train.

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.


In this unit I learned about conditionals and reported speech. How to teach the students when talking about something how to properly use the right tenses when reporting to another person. It can be difficult to use the right tenses, especially in English there are so many different formulas and methods. I learned how to distinguish between them and the mistakes that are commonly made by students.This lesson provided advice on troubleshooting and dealing with various problems that you might encounter in the English classroom. I learned some advice on how to properly teach listening exercises and what to do when a student begins to speak in their native language frequently. When you have a class with mixed ability students, it is important to pair the strong students with the weak students.
