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.


In this section I've learnt about theories, methods and techniques that are being in use for over three hundred years. I've particulary learnt about positivie and negative sides of each of them. Additionaly, I've been suggested the most modern and appropriate methodology for the time being which is an ESA methodology and I've been given some very clear examples of its usage which I find very useful.When preparing lessons for students the teacher must be able to discern between the activate and study phases when reviewing the lesson. There are many factors which affect the students interests and focus of study. In order to teach business English the teacher must only focus on the student's knowledge of english. Needs analysis helps the teacher better prepare when teaching 1-1 with a student.
