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.


There are many ways to evaluate and test a student's English skill. I have learned that there are three specific ways to test their skills. Tutorials, student's own evaluations, and tests are the three main ways to do this. Out of all these ways, tests are the main source of evaluating a student's English level. I have learned that there are many different types of tests that are used for evaluations.This was a very useful portion of this study. The skills of reading and listening are crucial in any English class. As such practitioners need to constantly learn ways as to how to ensure that these skills are not overlooked in the learning process. I am glad to have been able to look at how that can be so throughout the study of this unit and I intend to make this part of my practice in the future.
