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 liked this unit, it confirmed very definite problems that one can be faced with in the lesson. I have experienced this with the younger students. Especially ones who do not want to participate in the lesson. This I have found to be confidence and stronger students taking the lead in shouting out the answers in order to assist another student. The show such compassion for each other.The unit 15 talked about something very important for inexperienced teachers like me: evaluation and testing. The lesson introduced some ways (tutorials, evaluation by students and tests) to assess a student language level. The unit also explained the different types of tests and their use, including one example of a placement test. In the end, it was shown the most famous external exams.
