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, we learnt about teaching writing and speaking English. These two skills are used with the same purpose: to communicate. Because writing is a more quiet activity, teachers tend to neglect this skill, but it is as essential as speaking. When teaching these skills, the teacher must create the need to communicate, either through group activities, games in the classroom, etc.Unit three was an enlightening experience for me, and I learned many things through the study of it. I learned specifics on grouping students and how to do it, the importance of classroom arrangements, and many good tips on establishing rapport and maintaining discipline. I feel that I most need to improve on the area of eye contact, and have been inspired to work harder in that area.
