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 unit 13 brought a lot of new information. It was focused on teaching pronunciation and phonology. Many techniques were introduced to teach about intonation and stress. The phonemic alphabet was the most interesting, since I didn't know to use it before. Articulation and pronunciation were also included in this lesson. Therefore, this unit was a bit more complex, but extremely necessary to make me a better teacher.Students may already come into class a little nervous, specially adults because they may feel more cautious and perhaps embarrassed. With children is a little bet different because they are not thinking about it, specially when it comes to pronounciating words. Part of a teachers job is to make both groups feel comfortable and to stablish a good relationship, and also to remember to have fun while your are learning.
