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 unit dealt with the subject of phonology and pronunciation. Intonation and stress are important factors in mastering a new language. General rules were provided to teach which words are stressed in a sentence and which syllables receive the stress in multi-syllabic words.The International Phonetic Language was presented as well as techniques for working on producing these sounds.There were so many methodologies to remember and I honestly forgot most of them, but I did like learning about the Engage-Study-Activate Lesson structure. It gave me several ideas on PowerPoints to make as well as worksheets and fun activities. Based on the three types (ESA, Boomerang, Patchwork), I know I'll use Patchwork a lot. I like structure, but a little wiggle room is nice too.
