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.


A good teacher should know his students well and understand their educational needs. He should always modify his teaching plan to suit learners from different language levels and age groups. Playing a different role in each class activity is an effective way to encourage students to become good learners. Teachers who adopt this teaching strategy are likely to demonstrate the characteristics of a good teacher.This unit covers such topic as lesson planning and helps to understand how to write a structured lesson plan in order to use it effectively and easily. Having decided not to write formal plans each time, but to write down log details into class notebooks, I usually skip writing down monitoring parts of my lessons, which, after reading this unit, I find important and valuable for personal professional growth.
