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 was a shorter unit on how to teach different aspects of language. The main three aspects to cover in the classroom are vocabulary, grammar, and function. Vocabulary and grammar tend to rely heavily on engage and study phases, whereas function mainly lies in activate stages. It is important to consider the appropriateness, amount of usage, and teachability of vocabulary and grammar when structuring lessons for students.I have loved this unit. You never know what class or teaching environments you might get. One must always be prepared for any of it. I particually like the heterogeneous nature of teaching and the ability to adapt to all cultures and levels of students is indicative of how good of a teacher one is. Not making it to challenging but challenging enough to keep stronger learners engaged. Reading the situation is very important.
