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.


This unit helped me explore the different ways to manage a class and reflect on which method feels natural and good to me. It gave me techniques, resources and information on how to manage various problems that could arise when I teach a class. Classroom management determines how effectively the class will learn, so having expertise in this area is essential in becoming a successful English teacher.In this unit I have learnt the importance of lessons planning, than how the lesson plan should be written, what should be included in it and how to make sure that lesson and class go smoothly. Also, for every teacher it's very important to improve his/her skills and to make his/her classes more enjoyable. In order to achieve that the teachers should monitor and evaluate the quality of their lessons.
