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 lesson is interesting because it provided me with additional teaching styles. before I only knew of a few and this lesson broke down additional techniques that could be helpful to student engagement. of course it all about personal style, but knowing your options is very helpful. I thought that there were just a few ways lesson planning could go, but it is a relief to know that I have more options.Like in Unit 11, speaking and writing will need to be more interactive and practise more. It wasn't easy when I first started learning English. After reading and completing this unit, introducing game activities will benefit their understanding and more practise on how to use the language. For me, I will need to search on games that could help encourage students to be more interactive with the language.
