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.


I feel I have learned a lot about the importance of student-teacher interaction and how that influences classroom management in this lesson. Most of the lesson covers the basics of classroom management and it also goes over classroom structure and how that can affect the lesson. This is one of the most important things a starting teacher can learn as it affects every single part of teaching.This unit was helpful in assessing specific student learner groups which may need various of updated accommodation for effective learning. This unit looked broadly both at young learners or English in addition to adult learners at different levels. Therefore, this section is essential for a teacher if they plan on venturing outside traditional models of teaching for students in various roles
