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 11 gives nicely organized information about receptive skills , their huge place, problems importance in teaching. Very important thing is to remember that receptive skills are same importance as productive skills. I got a lot of information about how to deal with reading in class, how to organize reading class and what details I should pay attention to. Thanks for task materials, I found them quite interesting and useful.This unit we learned the other two basic skills - Writing and Speaking. If we are allowed to categorise the four skills we have learned in the last 2 chapters, I can safely say that the previous chapter - Reading and Listening - focuses on more passive form of learning, where this chapter focuses on a more active one. Now that we know how to utilise all these skills, we can use them to make a creative environment in the class.
