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 unit was all about the different methods that teachers can use to effectively teach English. In particular, it highlighted the Engage Study Activate method as the ideal way to teach a language. Then it further explored the ESA method, breaking down each part and giving examples about how to carry out the method best. I learned that a lot of situational awareness and creativity are necessary in teaching a language.In this unit, I learned that structure is very important for parts of speech, specifically in constructing a sentence. A simple sentence needs at least an subject and a verb. Even though there are rules for constructing a sentence, the English language is complex where there are exceptions. For example, his and its can be used as possessive pronouns or possessive adjectives just depending on the sentence is structured.
