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 is unit is all about phonetics and pronunciation of the English language, and how to teach that to your students. This chapter mentions that this is one of the most overlooked areas while learning a language, and I recognized that from my own schooling in foreign languages. I appreciated that this section included the phonetic alphabet as well as diagrams for the mouth. It will be nice to be able to reference this in the future.Teaching with the use of course books is debated in all subjects, including English language learning. A good teacher must be flexible and adaptive in their approach when it comes to incorporating lesson materials. Being able to balance the use of the course book with supplemental materials (authentic or created) in order to meet curriculum goals as well as the specific needs of a particular student or group of students is essential.
