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 the learning context for children, it's important to consider that there are two main groups of ages: between five to nine and nine to thirteen years. Based on the ages' characteristics, the teacher can design a lesson that fits the best way to the students. That way, the children can learn in the most appropriate way, displaying confidence and cooperation, which finally will lead to a good flow between lessons.A totally new style of learning to previous lessons, noticing what the teacher did right from the beginning was a moral boost to my overall comprehension. With this new style of learning it was however hard to know what to focus on for the test, what to pay attention to. Eventually I decided that the \"task sheet\" would provide a substantive way forward. An interesting style, definitely a new positive perspective.
