Indonesia is one of the most beautiful, fascinating and culturally absorbing nations in the world. As the capital city, Jakarta is a gateway to the natural and human treasures found throughout the islands. Jakarta is a busy metropolis, yet it is only a 60-90 minute boat ride to the Thousand Islands; a tranquil weekend getaway that’s a great place for diving and snorkeling with its vibrant coral reefs, or just to relax and sunbathe on the beaches.

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.


Learning how to effectively lesson plan is what was covered in this unit. I also learned the benefits and advantages of lesson planning prior to coming to class. It helps you stay on task, be prepared, and have possible alternative outcomes if something does not go as planned. This tool is extremely useful when teaching a times lesson and you want to cover multiple things and incorporate multiple activities.This unit demonstrates various methods for managing a class including proper use of eye contact, proper use of gestures, benefits of grouping students, how to vary seating in the classroom, teacher body language, establishing good class rapport, proper use of discipline, etc. This unit also teaches teachers how to give instructions so that students are likely to understand what is happening in the classroom.
