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 lesson talks about the different methods of classroom management. I liked this unit because often I don't think about classroom management being a skill which can be used to increase the effectiveness of the lesson. I enjoyed reading about the how I can engage my students more in eye contact, gestures, voice, and also how to group students better. I will consider these factors for my next class.This unit explains English teaching in special groups and difines the types of classes, such as beginers, individual students, young learners, business English, monolingual and multilingual class. Teaching beginers is one of the most rewarding and enjoyable aspects of EFL teaching. Tips for teaching beginers, such as methodologies, techniques, possible problems, and motivation were given in the text.
