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.


I myself find teaching pronunciation and phonology the most difficult part of teaching. The unit gives an explanation how to make it more easy and interesting for students. I still don't think that the whole class should be spent teaching phonetics. But I'm sure that at each class some time should be spend training pronunciation and giving the reason why some words and phrases should be said in a particular way.This unit highlighted the many different physical and online resources available to hep plan a lesson and make a lesson more interactive and dynamic. I think video recording is an excellent tool in particular, although initially uncomfortable it is the best way for a person to see how Thye are doing. iT also gives opportunity for peer praise and feedback. All of the links to online resources will be very useful.
