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.


There are more than enough methods of teaching and there should be teaching equipment that should be more suitable for each of those methods. The majority of the equipment I was lucky enough to have access to as a child when going to school. It helps to think like the student in a lot of ways when trying to decide which equipment to use for certain lessons in order to bring them maximum benefit.The contents of this material are all about the definitions of the two monolingual groups, and the solutions when teaching students who are not highly motivated to learn, and unfamiliar with the language. I've felt that this lesson helps me a lot because I've classified the groups of monolingual students and learnt some different ways on how to deal with the problems when teaching these groups.
