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.


Unit 13 focuses on whether teachers should use either authentic or created materials. The module covers the appropriate uses for both authentic and created materials; gives examples of both categories and also lists the pros and cons. My personal preference is the use of pictures that are either downloaded or sourced from publications as I feel that all students can relate to visuals of common products.Now this unit was very detailed in analyzing a student's behavior. Again, the classifications were also helpful in organizing a syllabus. I found the ENGAGE/STUDY/PRACTICE pattern somewhat confusing as the lesson did not really indicate why the theme was important to cover. Separating functional from structural was helpful, but I would prefer a mixture of the two applications in designing a lesson plan.
