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 section discusses different ways in which to teach a foreign language to students. It offers various ideas and ways to incorporate each of the three different stages of the ESA method - Engage, Study, and Activate. I appreciate that this unit gave us some example lesson plans using both the boomerang method and also the patchwork method. It's nice that we have some examples to work off of and to get ideas from.I have learned about the standard lesson plan formats and the activities to go along with the content of the lesson plans. I believe this chapter will be very useful, even in the future as it references quite a number of activities that one can use to help others learn the language. In effect, it can act as a guide or a catalogue of ideas with which the teacher can select the proper tools to help teach their lesson.
