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.


The different styles of learning indicate to me that there should be a wide variety of topics and activities besides a simple lecture. For instance, a lecture can be balanced out with group activities that would motivate the students into applying different language skills besides simply listening and taking notes. It also makes me excited to try different activities out to fit the desires and comfort level of my various students.This was an interesting lesson for me as I have never gone into such great detail with phonetics ever before. I especially liked the part of chapter that covered the different parts of the mouth that were used in articulation, as well as the different ways we use our mouth to articulate different sounds. It was also very useful to have teaching tips on how to show and teach students how to pronounce words correctly and accurately.
