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, I have learned some important topics aside from English itself regarding the business English such as the etiquette, resume, interview, and so on. Although it depends on the country where I am trying to apply for, it is important to know some things that are good and bad to implement in the region. Prior to the application, we need to study and understand the culture of the region.The unit contains much information to be studied. It also can be very useful to teach some of my students. There are many examples supporting the rules. Everything is organized- from general to specific. It is easy to refresh my knowledge of this part of the English grammar. I feel that this unit pushed me to revise several books on grammar and prepare some new tests for my students. Thank you.
