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.


Unit 13 is about teaching pronunciation and phonology. As pronunciation is believed to be the most neglected aspect of the English language, this unit discussed it in detail and provided examples for the learners to understand it thoroughly. Other parts discussed were about the intonation, stress, and phonemic alphabet, symbols, articulation and teaching techniques. The lesson also showed some pictures for absolute understanding.This unit was about the productive skills and how they can be taught, and about using games in the classroom. I learned what should be taught when teaching productive skills. I also learned what accuracy and fluency activities were, what should be done during these activities, and when to use them. Finally, I learned that traditional games can be adapted to teaching English and that games should be used as a part of the syllabus.
