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.


I think that this particular unit is very important to have good knowledge of as an English teacher. If I know these rules very well I will be able to teach them to my students slowly and then they will have more confidence in their English because they have clear rules to follow. I think I will repeat this section as much as I can to grasp the general concepts of what English is built upon.This unit was about language theories that are said each theory contains another one. Besides, young learners group was divided into two sections: 5-9 years old and 9-13 years old, each section requires different approach of learning, games and other activity. Moreover, learning environment section was mentioned in terms of easier getting attention of teacher and communication with students.
